Sour cream all the way!! And extra sour cream at that! Maybe ketchup for a nice change once in a while..
Absolutely sour cream. Only with a dairy meal. Otherwise apple sauce with meat and chicken.
Hold the applesauce and the sour cream…..never heard of ketchup …..for me just a sprinkling of pink salt from Asia! To each his own!
