Uses for accidentally frozen sour cream?

eamcd | Mar 9, 201008:37 AM     10

Our fridge is unreliable -- and items accidentally in the wrong spots end up frozen. (Unfortunately there's no budget to replace it right now.) So we have a nearly full container of sour cream that ended up frozen. It's now defrosted (in the fridge) and the flavor is fine, but it's very thin and runny.

Before I throw it out, it seemed to me that there might be a way to use it anyway -- in a recipe that didn't require the thick texture. I thought maybe baking? Or a recipe that adds sour cream to liquid?

I'd love any suggestions you might have!
