  1. Mix the Chipotle Cream Sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  2. In a skillet set at medium-high heat, add the seven ingredients from the olive oil through the cilantro. Saute those ingredients for 5 minutes.

  4. Heat the tortillas according to the package instructions. Lay each of the warmed tortillas on a cutting board and place one-quarter of both the field greens and fish on the center of each tortilla. Then top each with equal amounts of the Chipotle Cream Sauce.

I tried this recipe on a whim and was able to make some adjustments that made it a fantastic dish for the whole family. In the cream sauce I didn't use the chipotle chilies instead I added 2 T fresh snipped cilantro, 1/2 t cumin, 1/4 t onion salt & 1 T lime juice. Next time I will add green chilies. For the fish I used 3 T olive oil, 2 t cumin, a dash of cinnamon, 1/2 t onion salt, 2 T minced garlic, 2 T dehydrated onion and a bunch of snipped fresh cilantro. I let it saute about 5 minutes and added 4 T lime juice and 5 tilapia fillets. I warmed the soft taco sized flour tortillas in a skillet added fish, the garlic/cilatro mix, put a small amount of cream sauce on the tortilla and topped with finely shredded green cabbage. My 10 year old & my husband loved it! It was fast, easy & flavorful. I will double the recipe next time!


This was the BEST fish taco I have ever had! My family really enjoyed it. Tilapia is so clean-tasting and with the spices, it became very flavorful. One change was adding an extra chile to the sour cream mixture. It made it spicier and more delicious. Definitely a keeper!


This was absolutely delicious, my whole family loved these tacos. However I did leave the chipotle cream off the kids tacos. But the cream was perfect for my husband and I and we smothered our tacos. The only thing I did different was instead of putting greens in the tacos I topped them with bagged coleslaw mix. And I used a little more oil and garlic than called for. What I really liked is that I threw this dinner together in a matter of minutes.
