Fish Tacos with Chipotle Cream

By

This has been one of my go-to dishes for a long time and I've always forgotten to post. It's super easy and has a great mix of everything (flavor, texture, and nutrition.) It works terrifically as both a finished dish on its own and as a starter recipe for improvisation. One of our favorites. Thanks, Ellie!
