Sour cream can be used for cooking and baking or can be used alone as a topping for nachos, tacos, and a variety of other foods and snacks. Sour cream is also a base for many vegetable dips, making it a versatile ingredient in the cooking community. Sour cream can be frozen, but sometimes when it thaws, it becomes a bit runny. Thickening the sour cream can be done with a simple procedure.

Drain the sour cream in a strainer to remove as much loose water as possible.

Pour the strained sour cream into a bowl, and stir with a spoon.

Stir in flour a spoonful at a time until the sour cream reaches the consistency you desire. The flour will quickly thicken the sour cream without causing clumps. The taste of the sour cream will remain the same.
