    It is not sour cream, do not confuse them or you will make a bad recipe...hehe

    SOUR CREAM is what mexicans use on tacos or fajitas, in spanish it would be CREMA AGRIA.

    "Crema de leche" its not sour at all.

    In english its just "cream" or heavy cream.....or even light cream, its what people pour into their coffees, or to make thick sauces.

    You could say that theres 3 types of "cream" you can get outta milk, for different uses:

    Sour Cream, Whipped Cream and ...... crema de leche.

    I just moved in to the US from Venezuela, and I had problems finding this on the supermarket, because its not named as "milk cream" , but i did found it, just that theyre just named plain "cream" just that they add the prefix HEAVY or LIGHT depending of its fat content.

    Hope that helps....

    Hello everybody:

    in my country, Uruguay, and I think also in Argentina, this is what we call "crema doble". It's a cream we use for some desserts. It's the fat of the milk.
    good luck!;)

    Tengo problemas al traducir una salsa en base a crema de leche, ¿Debería usar simplemente cream sauce? Estuve googleando el cream sauce y tiene una preparación que incluye queso y se ve más elaborada que la que en el texto se ofrece. Se trata del acompañamiento para un medallón de lomo
