    black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste

How to Make Awesome Avocado Crema with a Twist


  2. Gather your ingredients.
  3. Chef’s Note: You don’t want raw garlic in this recipe, so bake it… The process is simple: Place a clove (or more) of garlic on a piece of parchment paper, and drizzle with some olive oil. Place in a preheated 325f (165c) oven for about 20 – 30 minutes. Remove allow the garlic to cool, and there you go.
  4. Add the avocado, and Mexican crema (or sour cream), to the bowl of a food processor, fitted with an S-blade.
  5. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
  6. Add the remaining ingredients.
  7. Chef's Note: Continue to blend until smooth; however, you should still see bits of cilantro.
  8. Chef’s Note: At this point to a final check of the seasoning. I usually wind up adding a bit more lime juice, and salt.
  9. Chef’s Note: The Parmesan cheese is a totally optional addition. I will admit I do like it both ways (with or without). You’ll have to decide on you own.
  11. Place into a nice bowl, and surround with some chips or veggies. Enjoy.
  12. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
