Crema Agria is Mexico’s version of American sour cream French creme fraiche. The flavor is more sour and a bit saltier than American sour cream. I have heard that it also serves as a neutralizer for the heat of chile peppers. This is a great topping on tacos or enchiladas.
It can be found in some supermarkets in the dairy section. If you cannot find crema agria in your local store and do not want to simply substitute American sour cream, you can make this simple version easily at home.
