Grab some squeeze bottles
Hop on over to Smart & Final, your well-stocked grocery store, or Amazon and buy yourself some Squeeze Bottles! They don’t cost very much money, but the time and effort they save is amazing! You get just the right amount of sauce, not a big glop in the middle of your food. And, it was perfect to put on the table for Easter dinner’s taco bar. No mess. The kids can put it on their tacos for themselves. No waste!
This was actually Dan’s suggestion. He thought it would work out really well for Easter. And, yep, he was right! It did! I love it, and will keep using a squeeze bottle from now on.
Mix it up
All I had to do was mix a little cream or milk into the sour cream to thin it, then pour it through a funnel into the squeeze bottle. I took a sharpie and wrote on the bottle what was inside, so there’s no confusion.
A tip on the tip of the bottle (hee hee)… The thicker your sauce, the more you can cut the tip open. So, if you have pretty thin sauce you can leave the tip fairly closed, but if you prefer a little thicker sour cream just cut the tip down a bit until it’s open the right amount for your sauce to squeeze out easily.
That’s it! A Super Simple Way to Serve Sour Cream! See it in action on my Tostada with Mexican Corn Salad.

I heart Squeeze bottles! I bought a bunch on amazon couldn’t find any at the store!

So great! Squeeze bottles totally let you turn sauces into artistic finishes for presenting beautiful food! And it didn’t occur to me until now – but you’re so right that this is a brilliant way to give kiddos control of their meals (without waste!). Great post! 😀
Thanks, Sophia! I got these at Smart & Final. But I don’t know if that’s just a west coast store. Amazon’s great for everything though! 🙂
I love these squeeze bottles, they’re great to get the perfect ‘drizzle’ and design. Great tip Debi 🙂

I am going to try this next time I whip up some cashew cream. I think my family will be impressed, and I will just sit back and take in the compliments! Ahhh yeah! PS. I LOVE kitchen tips. I’ve learned so many short cuts over the years that have upped my kitchen game tremendously -thanks for yours!
This is SUCH an excellent idea!!!!!!!!!
Great idea!! I will have to get some!!
Love the idea – I hate everyone trying to scoop out of the container! Stopping by from Happiness Homemade party!
And I actually have some new squeeze-bottles! that I bought and haven’t used yet.
How do you get it in the bottle?
Mary, great question. I use a funnel. My canning funnel doesn’t work in these squeeze bottles, it’s too wide-mouthed. So, I just use a regular funnel and pour it through. If it gets stuck, give it a gentle stir in the mouth of the funnel with a spoon. This year, I also put out some Enchilada Sauce in a squirt bottle. Worked great!
