Spicy Chipotle Grilled Fish Street Tacos with LA MORENA®


This summer has been spent in the sun...lots of sun...and somehow, equally lots of rain.  We've had family in from out of town lately & we like to cook home made meals when we can...especially out on the grill!  Luckily, the rain has been giving us some reprieve around dinner time, so outside we go!


I had been wanting to try something new using LA MORENA® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce & just knew I had to try it on fish tacos!  LA MORENA® has been providing the highest quality traditional flavors for over 35 years!  I hadn't had the LA MORENA® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce before & it did not disappoint!  I traveled over to my local Fiesta & picked some up, along with some LA MORENA® Sliced Jalapeños!  Even had a little fun hanging out under a palm tree!  I mean...it is summer, right?!

Bo & I love a good fish taco & I found the cutest little street taco tortillas to use!  Are you a corn tortilla person or a flour tortilla person?  I can go either way but for a seafood taco...it's corn all the way!

I personally love tilapia!  It's thin (which is a must for me), flaky & super simple to cook.  I also like the fact that it's normally sold in a bag full of individually wrapped fillets.  So you can take out the amount you want without having to thaw the entire package.

I grabbed all of my ingredients & got to work!

Spicy Chipotle Grilled Fish Tacos with LA MORENA®. Tilapia is the perfect flaky fish for summer fish tacos

Spicy Chipotle Grilled Fish Street Tacos

Ingredients:
2-3 fillets of Tilapia
1 can of LA MORENA® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce (7oz)
1 can of LA MORENA® Sliced Jalapeños (28oz.)
ranch dip (store bought or homemade)
seasoned salt
olive oil (to drizzle)
corn tortillas

Garnishes:
chopped red onion
chopped cilantro
lime

Prep:
Place about 1/2 cup of ranch dip in a food processor.  Add 2-3 chipotle peppers.  Pulse until creamy.  Put in refrigerator to thicken.

Directions:
- Place fish fillets on a sheet of foil
- Lightly salt each side of the fish fillets
- Coat each side of the fish with the adobo sauce from the LA MORENA® can
- Spread a dollop of the Chipotle Ranch mixture onto each fish fillet
- Lightly drizzle olive oil over the fish fillets (so the fish doesn't stick to the foil while being grilled)
- Place another piece of foil over the fish fillets
- Wrap the edges together to make a foil pouch
- Grill 10-12 minutes

Once done, rip open the top of the foil pouch & plate it up!


I'm not one for frying my corn tortillas to soften them up, so I just soften corn tortillas in a moist paper towel.  Run a little water on a paper towel, wrap tortillas in it & microwave for 30 seconds or so.  They soften them up with the humidity from the moist paper towel & come out perfect every time!

I prepared each of my street taco corn tortillas with the fish & topped with red onion, cilantro & some Chipotle Ranch.  And the final verdict.... DELICIOUS!  My husband grilled the fish perfectly, the fish had a nice spice to it & the Chipotle Ranch was just spicy enough to add more flavor & cool it down all at the same time.

Another garnish my husband likes to use is pico de gallo.  We normally buy a pre-made pico from the grocery store but sometimes it's just not hot enough.  This time, I added some LA MORENA® Sliced Jalapeños & jalapeño juice to the pico de gallo & it was MUCH spicier!
