Why do you use "reduced-fat sour cream"?

Hi there. We use reduced-fat ingredients in some of our recipes in order to reduce some of the calories or fat in the final dish. All of our recipes are developed in accordance with the standards set by the American Diabetes Association, which gives us guidelines for how much fat, carbs, and sodium a diabetic-friendly recipe can contain. Of course, these are just general guidelines and should never supersede information given to you by your doctor or nutritionist. While this recipe calls for reduced-fat sour cream, you can substitute with regular sour cream if you'd like. Please be aware that this will change the provided nutritional information from what is posted on this page. Thanks and enjoy!
