Turn an ordinary taco into something special with this creamy, herb-studded sauce in place of plain sour cream. It's traditionally made with Mexican crema, a tangy-sweet cultured cream; if it's available in your area, it can be used in place of the sour cream.
- 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon minced scallion greens
- 1 teaspoon seeded and minced serrano chile
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- Freshly ground pepper, to taste
- Combine sour cream, cilantro, scallion greens, chile, salt and pepper in a small bowl until smooth.
