Hello Spoon U readers! I couldn’t find a recipe that was quite to my liking, so I thought I’d finally codify the one I use from memory. Enjoy!
Yields about three quarters of a cup.
Half cup mayonnaise
Quarter cup crema. Alternatives include sour cream, yogurt, 3 tablespoons buttermilk, or 1 teaspoon white vinegar if you’re really hard up.
Juice of half a lime. Hold back on this a bit if you’re using buttermilk, and skip entirely if you’re using vinegar.
- Start with this, thoroughly whisk together, and adjust for taste and consistency. I prefer a sauce that’s just barely pourable.
- Also, instead of simply dispensing this atop your taco, try tossing the shredded cabbage in this. This ensures that every bite has a taste of every part of the taco.
