RE: Mexican "table cream"
Thank you for the info re: table cream. 2 questions:
1. Why is it called "table" cream??
2. The restaurant had a delicious "dip" made, probably, of table cream. Along with chips and "regular" salsa (chopped tomatoes, etc) there was this small bowl of rather unattractive greenish sauce. But it was yummy - the waiter (who didn't speak much English) said it was like guacomole - but it was thinner, rather runny, with avocado, green chile, cilantro, other spices,and "crema" (?)
Does anyone know what is the name of it?
