sour cream?
 
What do you like to use sour cream for? I rarely use it and always end up throwing out a bunch because it goes bad before I can finish it - even when I buy a tiny container.

I'm trying to get much better about not wasting food so looking for some ideas. I'm sure there are plenty of low carb things to do with it.

I use a dollop or two on lots of things, chili, on any mexican or spanish dish, mix with ranch seasonings for dip, a few spoonfuls in my cheesecake recipe, etc.

It's wonderful stirred into all kinds of soups and broths.
I also mix with sliced cukes, diluted just a bit with vinegar for a nice summer treat.

You can add a dollop on top of cheesy scrambled eggs or an omelet too.

I have mixed into SF jello

Mexican food and soups are one of the things I do use it for, but I don't make that often enough to use it up.

I'm definitely going to try the cukes thing. I just do them with vinegar normally. I just bought a fresh one from the farmer's market and have some of that leftover sour cream. Going to try that tonight.

This is one of the uses that just seem weird to me. I may give it a try though to see if I actually like it.

In cheesecake. I've always liked that it lightens up the cream cheese and gives it a little tanginess.
Also mixed with salsa as a taco salad dressing.

This is what I make when I have too much sour cream!

I've found that you can just throw everything, cheese and all, into the blender, then heat. Works fine. Add your shredded chicken when you put the soup on to heat, if you're using chicken or another protein.

I eat it on my cheese crackers -

American deluxe microwaved for 90 seconds.

It's my favorite snack

left-over sour cream ??
 
It lasts forever so never get to "left-over" point. Makes a great dip as is for store bought pork rinds(skins).

How about adding to salads, like a mock-potato salad, egg salad, slaws? I like to add to those types of salads to cut back on the strong mayo flavor.

I use it as the fat for my one minute muffins, especiallymifmimwant a more savory muffin. I also love it on broccoli - "loaded" broccoli is my current favorite thing to eat.

Turn it into a dip and eat it with raw veggies.

It's also great on taco salad.

Sour cream with green chilies is delicious.

I add it to coleslaw and pimento cheese and if I make potato salad for my wife, she likes sour cream in that too.

I buy it by the quart!
 
I use it in baking. It subs for some of the fat and liquid in biscuits, muffins, breads etc.

I mentioned this in another thread, but my favorite thing for a while was to make the microwave cheese crackers using extra sharp cheddar cheese with a pinch of cayenne pepper on them, and to top them with sour cream and bacon crumbles. Delicious and reminded me of baked potato skins.

Karerose 09-05-2013 06:53 AM

Thanks for the ideas. I'll be looking again later when I need ideas, so even if I don't post again soon rest assured I'll be here looking again for ideas.

Trust me it doesn't last forever, and it is nasty looking when it gets old.

This sounds yummy.
