I absolutely LOVE this dressing, and as I continue to use it, I’ve added my own little touch…a little jalapeños and some Cilantro…so so very yummy 😋, thanks Pati, love your episodes and your adorable personality!
You are so kind, thanks so much!
Virginia y juan en OKC, OK
nos encanta como representas Mexico.
las recetas son sencillas y bien presentadas.
Mil gracias Virginia y Juan, que amables! Les mando un abrazo.
How long does he Avocado Crema and Avocado Salsa last in the refrigerator? I came into a lot of ripe avocados and I’m trying to use them.
Not longer than a couple of days Theresa, you know the avocado turns brown pretty quickly 🙂
My family and I made your chicken pibil and this crema last night. It was so simple and delicious. We are having Pati recipe nights every Friday, and have had so much fun. Thank you so much for providing us with such beautiful recipes and beautiful glimpses into your country’s culture. I am leaving for Oaxaca April 2nd, and cannot wait to taste all of the moles and toasted bugs! Thanks for all that you do! Lilli
This is very sweet of you Lilli, love the idea of Pati recipe nights, yay! Have fun in Oaxaca, you are going to love it 😉
What is close to a Mexican Crema in Australia ? Please .
You can always use sour cream Margie, enjoy and greetings to Australia!
Love love love this recipe
Thank you Pat, enjoy!!!!
I am going to try this out with my first attempt at Cochinita Pibil. Pati, i love your approach to food, culture, people – combined a life sustaining force.
Thanks so much Frank, enjoy your Cochinita 😉
I made this for a fancy salad with goat cheese. Wow!!!
I’d like to repeat a comment below—this is not guacamole. It’s more like
a Mexican aioli sauce. In love with it.
I bought my Vitamix because of Pati. No regrets and so happy with all her recipes and
also my Vitamix.
You are absolutely right, it is similar to an aioli Jennifer. I am so happy to read that you like my recipes and that you give them your own twist. Keep cooking my friend!
Pati, I made this last week as a dipping sauce with some turkey meatballs and roasted veggies, and it was so good! You have never steered me wrong with a recipe yet.
So happy to hear this Gina! Thank you.
That’s how my mom makes her guacamole but she also adds cilantro. So yummy! She’s from Sonora Mexico. I, here in California, substitute cream for sour cream. My little ones like it better. Thank you for your recipes.
I love you and your family. Wrote to you before that I also raised 3 boys same age as your, but now I’m old and not well. I just had heart surgery. I miss my son’s living at home. Anyway I *us want to tell you I love this avocado creme recipe. I wish you were my neighbor or better yet my sister and you could cook for me once a month. I’m to sick to cook like I used to, so I watch your shows and read your cookbooks and pray I meet you some day. God bless you and your family.
Feel better soon Francine. Sending you my best.
Thank you so much Pati. God bless you and your family.
love your show and I’ve visited some of the areas you feature on your show
this crema I’ve made with cilantro, roasted tomatilos, and either jalepano or roasted hatch chiles
Thank you!! The crema sounds delicious with those ingredients. I will have to try!
I’v made this but added cilantro , roasted tomatilos, roasted jalepeno , and one time I added roasted hatch chiles in lieu of jalepeno….it’s great on everything
I am enchanted with the flavor. Not guacamole. So a new taste treat. Kind of like making my own flavored mayo. Went well with pibil sandwich. Would add little adobo sauce to chicken on sandwich and a little salt.
Freda, I’m glad you liked the avocado crema!
I have just moved to a very rural part of PA, and have not yet found ANY “ethnic” markets nearby. Can I sub sour cream in this recipe?
Yes…that’s a great substitute.

I came here from New York City and the world 20 years ago…lived in Mexico for a short time in 1977 ….I too love Patti and the show….where in Pa do you live because there are many Spanish people and market here…..yesterday I bought Mexican crema to make this recipe…….
I actually live in the greater Washington DC area… great to hear you found crema!

But I always think “Wow, she has such beautiful hydrangeas, especially in Texas!” Hahaha
