Any time you make something Tex Mex, you gotta make this sauce for it. Take the flavor up a notch or THREE! This makes your sour cream taste so much better. You can add a little something extra to any dish that uses a cream sauce, really.

Cumin seed is a tiny dried fruit that comes from a small Umbelliferae plant belonging to the same plant family as parsley, carrots, dill, and caraway. 

I’ve never even thought of adding seasonings to it, but I got to thinking about when you get a cream sauce at the restaurant. It’s always so tasty and at its core, it’s sour cream! So today I’m sharing this amazing recipe with you that is sure to be the topic of conversation with your family when they taste this amazing addition to your favorite Mexican or Tex Mex dish!

Mix It Up!

All you have to do is stir! Get a bowl and combine the seasonings into the sour cream and that’s it. Start by adding cumin, garlic powder, salt, pepper, lime juice, even chili powder or red pepper flakes would be yummy. Try different combos and see how you like it. Make this recipe your own.

It’s So Tasty and So Flippin’ Easy!
