A favorite condiment around my dinner table is fresh Crema Mexicana. Or crema from Guatemala, Honduras, or El Salvador. Wherever you call home, this creamy saucecan be used on everything from fish tacos (my favorite) and enchiladas to guacamole and veggie dip. What is sold in the supermarkets, while delicious, is loaded with additives such as gums and stabilizers. These ensure that the crema doesn’t separate on its journey to our kitchens, but if you are trying to cut down on processed food additives, whipping up your own crema is a great place to start.
