Put the contents of the can or box of media crema in a plastic container that has a lid. Mix in 1 teaspoon of vinegar If you want a thicker sour cream, mix in a second teaspoon after the first teaspoon is mixed in. Don’t use more than 2 teaspoons.
You can either use it immediately or, for the best results, put the lid on and refrigerate it for a half hour before using.
Other types of vinegar, lemon or lime juice, or white wine can be substituted for the white vinegar.
It will last 1 to 2 days in the refrigerator.
Use it in any recipe, just as you would any other sour cream. Note that this makes 1 cup, or a half pint — many dip recipes call for a pint, so you’d need a double batch.
