Author Notes: While in Mexico I purchased a container of "Chipotle Crema" that turned out to be a fabulous dip. It had a deep bronze color and wonderful smoky flavor, and the creamy texture of Mexican sour cream. I started dipping tortilla chips and tostadas in it, and then just ate it by the spoonful. When I camee home, I tried to reproduce this concoction by mixing creme fraiche, greek yogurt, chipotle pepper, and a little agave nectar. I like the contrast of sweet to spicy. It's not the same as the Mexican version, but it goes well with chips, especially sweet potato chips.JoanG
