You may have had an avocado crema like this at a Mexican or Southwestern restaurant. It make a great topping for almost anything, with all of the flavors coming through just right - lime, garlic, avocado, and cilantro. Many versions that I have had are a bit spicy, and you could add some crushed red pepper flakes or a bit of cayenne pepper and the crema will really pop.
Serve this over grilled fish, on tacos, with roasted chicken, or even on your sandwiches.
