When I was 11 years old I took a trip to mi abuelas hometown of Guanajuato, Mexico to visit mi gran abuelito before he passed away. That trip was life changing and I went through a major culture shock especially when my car broke down outside of a slaughter house and after seeing animals being sold in a marketplace, I left Mexico a changed young lady. Most practicing Catholics don't eat meat on Fridays during Lent, but I gave it up completely and didn't eat a single piece of meat for 6 years. I will always remember mi abuleas recipes that were specific for Lent, especially her tacos del horno and fried potato cakes. Now, I have my own traditional non-meat recipes and today I am sharing my favorite fried fish tacos with a creamy chipotle sauce with the help of La Morena.
I am a new fan of La Morena, I love it's authentic ingredients, it is a Mexican food brand that lets you incorporate a true taste of Mexico into your own home cooking. Opening a can of La Morena chiles takes me and my kitchen back to mi abuealas home cooked meals that I miss so much.
Do you like fish? I know a lot of people shy away from cooking fish at home, but not me, I love fish and especially fish tacos. Although I make them pretty often during the summer, I think I mostly love the versatility of them. Today I am sharing my recipe for the easy, but delicious Creamy La Morena Chipotle Sauce to top my fish tacos.
I went to my neighborhood Food 4 Less store to purchase all of my ingredients for my fish tacos.
La Morena 7oz Chipotle Peppers
2 lbs Swai Fish fillets
1 package Fish Fry
(You can use any batter you desire but I use Louisiana style Fish Fry, It's spicy.)
1 cabbage sliced (or cole slaw)
2 cloves of Garlic
16 oz. Crema con sal (Sour cream)
Queso Fresco (crumbly cheese)
Salt and Pepper
1. Heat skillet with oil and prepare to fry. Once fish is covered in batter, place in oil for 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from oil when lightly browned and set aside.
2. Open can of La Morena Chipotle in adobo sauce and empty into a food processor along with 2 garlic cloves, a pinch of salt and pepper and a cup of crema (sour cream). Blend until creamy.
3. Warm tortillas on a comal or in a microwave to soften.
4. Build your taco: a piece of fried fish, topped with shredded cabbage, creamy Chipotle sauce, and crumbles of queso fresco.
I also used La Morena sliced Jalapeños to create a creamy jalapeño sauce as another option, by using the same directions as the chipotle cream sauce.
I've shared my favorite recipes and traditions so tell me, what is your favorite non-meat or Lent inspired recipe? I could always use fresh ideas. I hope you enjoy your fish tacos with creamy chipotle or jalapeño sauce.
