This is an endlessly adaptable formula for which American sour cream, though unlike the cream of my childhood, works well. I use it to make Chilaquiles, crab enchiladas (Enchiladas de Cangrejo), my famous rice casserole, Arroz con Crema y Poblanos, and as a dip or sauce for fried oysters, fish, shrimp, or crudités.

Preparada is a hard word to translate
