  Sour Cream is a dairy procuct that is obtained by fermenting cream by using  certain kinds of  lactic-acid bacteria. This sours and thickens the cream. Its name stems from the production of lactic acid by bacterial fermentation, which is called souring.

How do you use it? Do you put it on a baked potato, or nachos or use it in dips or salad dressings? Do you use it in making cakes, biscuits or scones or other baked goods? Please share your favorite recipes.

mmm...mmm...love some sour cream!!!  I use it on tacos, baked potatoes, in banana pudding and for various toppings...

SOUR CREAM BANANA PUDDING - cooks.com

2 (3 oz.) pkg. instant vanilla pudding
2 boxes vanilla wafers
6 to 8 bananas
5 c. milk
8 oz. sour cream
12 oz. Cool Whip

Mix pudding and milk together until it starts to thicken. Add sour cream and a little less than 1/2 container of Cool Whip (reserve remaining Cool Whip for topping). Make layers, beginning with vanilla wafers, then bananas and pudding, then remaining Cool Whip on top. Sprinkle with vanilla wafer crumbs. This makes a large quantity. Put in 13 x 9 or roasting dish.

I LOVE sour cream. Above all else it has to be Darigold Mexican Sour Cream though. I make dips, salad dressing , I dip tortilla chips or taquitos in it alone. Toppings on my chili, burritos, tacos, mexican lasagnas.

 I use it to bake with to give baked goods a moist texture. Chocolate sour cream cake is fantastic!

Sour Cream Chicken Quiche is a yummy favorite here.

We are not big fans.  :(

The only thing I ever use sour cream for is to make dip for chips, and even this is very rare.  Once in a while I'll come across a recipe that uses it and I don't mind it in recipes but I can't eat it on my potatoes or nachos.  Yuck.

I don't use it. I'm allergic to it.

 I use it for a lot of things, dips, taco, nachos, potatoes mashed and baked. I've added to soups and casseroles, and even some cakes. It is a really versatile ingredient.

 I think so, too. I'm surprised that some people don't like it.
