Serve this crema with a kick along with Jennie’s Fish Tacos. It’s a good dipping sauce for nearly anything fried, from fish strips to chips.


  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 4 ounces sour cream
  • 1 garlic clove, pushed through a press
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped (optional)


Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until fully incorporated.

Cilantro Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Cilantro Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
