    Sour cream is the main ingredient in this recipe and you can find it in almost any general grocery store. It will be in the same isle with the milk. Sour cream is a white thickened cream that has a sour taste to it due to the bacterial cultures that are added to the cream. Sour cream is not something that you would want to eat alone; instead you can find it as a garnish to some dishes or a substitute for some creamy salad dressing or to replace mayonnaise in some recipes. This type of cream is found in many Mexican, German and Russian dishes.

    If you are currently on a diet, you don’t want to consume too much sour cream each day however, a little cream each day will not hurt. Many people worried about consuming too much protein in their daily diet will often add sour cream instead and here’s why. A half of a cup of regular sour cream has around 45 grams of protein which the body uses to create energy the body needs to do all the things you want to accomplish each day. You can reduce the grams of protein and fat in your intake of sour cream by purchasing the low fat version instead.

    Because of its relationship to dairy, sour cream can also be a great way to get your daily amount of calcium needed to protect and maintain bone health. One half cup of sour cream can give you 13% of what you need daily in calcium. You can also find other nutritional ingredients inside a tub of sour cream including B-2, also known as Riboflavin, and since the body doesn’t produce or even store this important nutrient, you can only get it from the foods you eat. Phosphorus is also an important nutrient found in this particular cream. Phosphorus is great for maintaining the health of your bones and transforming all macronutrients into something the body can use. Vitamin B-12 is great for nerve cell health and the autoimmune system and may be linked to prevention of certain autoimmune diseases.
