Homemade Guacamole with Mexican Sour Cream

Homemade Guacamole with Mexican Sour Cream

Episode 22: Nancy's Menu


Serves 4


3 large avocados, peeled, pitted, cubed (about 2 pounds/900 g total)
1/2 cup/125 ml Mexican crema or sour cream
1/4 bunch chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup/55 ml fresh lime juice
0 Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Deep-fried Fresh Tortillas


  1. Stir the avocados, crema, cilantro and lime juice in a large bowl to blend, keeping a chunky consistency. Season the guacamole generously to taste with salt and pepper.  Transfer the guacamole to a bowl.
  2. Serve immediately with the fried tortillas.  If not serving the guacamole immediately, press a sheet of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole to keep it from discoloring, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
