What's for Dinner?

Fish Taco Sauce

My husband found this recipe online and it has revolutionized our dinners. Okay, maybe that's too strong of a statement, but we now actually eat fish tacos at home--even the kids!  This sauce is delicious and could be thinned and used as a salad dressing, too.  Some like it hot, so adjust the spices to your family's tastes.  Chipotle chili powder has a wonderful spicy, smoky flavor that really gives this sauce its flavor, so I wouldn't recommend substituting regular chili powder.

Fish Taco Sauce

1/2 c sour cream
1/2 c mayonnaise
1 lime
1/2 t each of cumin, ground coriander, dill, oregano
1/4 t chipotle chili powder
1/2 t capers, minced
1 jalapeƱo, seeded and minced
1 T fresh cilantro, chopped

Whisk sour cream and mayonnaise together.  Add the juice of 1/2 the lime.  The sauce should be pourable. If it's too thick, add more lime juice, and if it's too thin, add more sour cream.

Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Cover and chill for 1 hour before using.
