Fish Tacos with Chipotle Cream
4 ounces fresh or frozen skinless red snapper, tilapia, or sole fillets, 1/2 inch thick
tablespoon cooking oil
teaspoon ancho chili powder
teaspoon ground cumin
teaspoon salt
teaspoon black pepper
cup dairy sour cream
teaspoon finely chopped canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
6 inches corn or flour tortillas
cups shredded cabbage or romaine lettuce
ripe avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, and cut into thin slices (optional)
cup refrigerated fresh salsa
lime, cut into wedges
Snipped fresh cilantro (optional)
  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Brush oil evenly onto both sides of fish. For rub, in a small bowl stir together chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle rub over both sides of fish; rub in with your fingers.
  2. For chipotle cream, in another small bowl stir together sour cream and chopped chipotle pepper; set aside. Wrap tortillas tightly in foil.
  3. For a charcoal grill, grill fish and tortilla packet on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 4 to 6 minutes or until fish begins to flake when tested with a fork and tortillas are heated through, turning fish and tortilla packet once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place fish and tortilla packet on greased grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.)
  4. Using a fork, break fish into pieces. Fill warm tortillas evenly with cabbage, fish, and, if desired, avocado slices. Serve with fresh salsa, chipotle cream, lime wedges, and, if desired, cilantro.
