I understand they are two different things b/c of sugar content, but that's what I want to reduce
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
it should work if the sugar level is all that you're looking to replace. I find condensed milk has a caramelish flavor that is lacking in evaporated milk.

May I ask what you're making? That might affect the answer.
I'm making a key lime pie that uses mostly condensed milk, a little sourcream, and the juice of key limes, it's a bit sweet w/ two cans of condensed milk and I was hoping to take a little of the sugar out of it.
Oooh, I'm with you! That seems way too much. Follow your instinct and reduce it to one. See what the consistency is like, then perhaps add a bit more sour cream. I wouldn't add any evaporated milk, as that might thin it out too much. Sounds heavenly!
Thanks you two for the suggestions.... I can't wait to try this out!! I'm also considering maybe substituting some cream cheese, omitting the sour cream and one can of the milk.
Mmmm. Sounds good!
I wouldn't put in cream cheese but I might increase the lime juice proportionately.
