I was gonna call this Garlic Habanero Sour Cream something fancy like garlic habanero crema or ajo crema agria habanero (juuuusssst kidding. I Google translated that). Let’s face it, I’m not that big on being fancy and this is sour cream after all.
I mean sure I like fancy… In fact I love fancy… I’m all about dressing up in one of my Target dresses and my Nine West heels, to hit the town and feel all grown up and thirty. But what I love more than fancy is cotton. Cotton, linen, khaki, denim, comfy, relaxed, worn, distressed and lived in. That’s me… or as my nine-year-old would say… it’s my “jam”.
Habaneros are more of my husband’s “jam”.
“Jam” meaning… One’s shtick, thing, or way of being.
For example; if I make salsa, he’s all “It’d be better with a habanero in it.”
If I make spaghetti, he’ll say “Did you put a habanero in it?”
Or like even when I make pizza… “Hey? Do we have any habaneros to put on it?”
So finally with this recipe I can say “YES!! YES I DID PUT A HABANERO IN IT!!” And I did say that, loud and proud, with my fist in the air and with purpose! And ya wanna know what he said to me after the first bite?
“It could use another habanero in it.”
PIZZZZERBT… went my bubble of excitement. So if you want more habanero in it… add another stinkin’ habanero… I like it just the way it is, with one of those spicy buggers… but by all means… go for it!
How many times do you think I said habanero in this intro?
If you are handling this peppers bare handed you’re pretty brave. I’d use gloves. I didn’t and I thought I washed my hands pretty dang good… but I didn’t, and I itched my eye… and I about fell to the ground and cried. But I also must have touched my upper lip because it turned red and burned too! So go the safe route and wear some gloves.
Tip the top off and remove all those seeds and the white membranes or “ribs”, that is where all the heat is at. If you want it spicy leave some or all of them in… I just hope you know what you’re in for!
You will see some habaneros through out and that’s okay.
Tada! Garlic Habanero Sour Cream!
