The Best Fish Tacos

May 23, 2017

Everyone loves tacos. And these fish tacos with a creamy chipotle sauce are too delicious (and easy) not to try!

TACOS
tilapia  fillets (about 2 per person)
4 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon chili powder
flour or corn tortillas
CHIPOTLE SAUCE
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
3 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1 tablespoon of adobo sauce from can
2 garlic cloves (minced)
Juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper to taste
TOPPINGS
1 can corn
1 can black beans
shredded purple cabbage
avocado

Start with the sauce…Chop up the chipotle peppers, and mix together the mayonnaise, greek yogurt, minced garlic, lime juice, peppers, adobo sauce, salt and pepper. Voila! It’s ready to go and can be kept in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it.

Up next is the fish. Season the fish fillets with salt, pepper, chili powder, lime juice and drizzle with olive oil. In a saute pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. Add the fish fillets and cook until browned on each side. Set them aside until you are ready to assemble the tacos!

Once you have the fish cooked and the sauce prepared you are ready to assemble the tacos! I always start with spreading a little (or a lot) of sauce onto the tortilla. I then break apart the fish fillets and spoon some onto the tortilla. I then top it with a little corn, beans, red cabbage and avocado. Add another dollop of sauce to top it off and enjoy!

These tacos are seriously so. freaking. good. I could eat them multiple times a week if I wanted!
