Even though Cinco de Mayo is over, there is always time and tastebuds to enjoy the South of Border flavors. With left over vegan sour cream, I decided to grocery shop in my refrigerator to create a Mexican-inspired sauce/dressing for nachos and fiesta bowls.
The one thing I love about this recipe is that it reduces food waste. Whenever I buy herbs, I seem to use 25-30 percent, while the remaining rots in the fridge.
With a bundle of cilantro, I reduced the waste of the cilantro while using up the sour cream. You can use any brand of sour cream, and I'm an advocate for limiting processed foods, but here is something quick, easy, tasty and fun to dress up your tacos, burritos and bowls with something different and flavorful.
It's the perfect sauce or dressing for the upcoming summer season where Mexican food is the life of the party.
