I’m in the middle of making a fajita kit. I need sour cream - can I use mayonnaise instead? Anything else I can use?

Natural yoghurt

I often use creme fresh

Plain yoghurt?

Natural yoghurt?
What is it for?

Hmmm not sure my local shop will have creme fresh or natural yoghurt and the big supermarkets are closed now.

Normal double cream with a squeeze of lemon

Mayo doesn't sound terribly appetising - agree with the creme fraiche suggestions!

Or skip creamy things and have guacamole?

I always use greek yogurt now when I make fajitas as healthier and lower cals than sour cream.
Mayo doesn't really work. I would rather skip it.

I always use low-fat creme fraiche - our local co-op sells it but they also sell sour cream!

Had nothing else in fridge so used up some coleslaw with our fajitas last week and wasn't so bad with a bit of grated cheese...

You can add lemon juice to natural yoghurt, to turn it in to sour cream apparently....haven't tried it myself.
