What's the difference between adding sour cream vs cream cheese in a recipe?

ColoffulOne | Oct 28, 201409:57 AM     5

I found a recipe where one of the ingredients is sour cream. It's for macaroni and cheese and I want to use this particular recipe or Thanksgiving. I'm just curious as to the difference between using sour cream whichI have not used in previous recipes versus
cream cheese which I have used in previous recipes. What's the difference in taste, consistency and texture? Thanks for any input and advice.

Here's the link for the recipe that I want to use for Thanksgiving with pictures:
