Learn how to make Chipotle Lime Crema with this easy recipe!
I am a lover of all things sauce. or condiments.
Actually, funny story, apparently I love condiments so much, my husband still reminds me of this one time, which just so happened to be our first date, where I confessed my love for sauce. I remember our first date well and will always remember what I was thinking the moments after I told him how much I loved ketchup and ranch dressing and hot sauce.
‘seriously? condiments? this guy is going to think i’m obsessed with food. whatever, keep the conversation going…’
So, I kept it cool and continued to talk about sauces. It ultimately led to me talking about my own mother’s eating habits and how I was just like her. It’s true, I am. Especially when it comes to food.
Oh, and I am totally obsessed with food.
Now, nearly 9 years later (speaking of, I think it’s our 1 year wedding anniversary tomorrow) my husband is still with me and continues to put up with all my food concoctions and awkward conversations.
A couple weeks ago I wanted to make tacos, but I wanted them to have a spicy cream sauce to drizzle on top or dunk in. Chipotle, lime and cilantro are always winners so I went from there.
The sauce was delicious with just the right amount of kick from the chipotle chilis. And, those tacos I wanted to make? ah-maz-ing! (And coming tomorrow).
