Our family loves tacos and while the kids prefer the standard crispy beef variety, my favorite are these grilled fish tacos! And, they are a breeze to make. Either grill them outside with a grill basket or in the house on a grill pan. So good!

    What’s a good sub for ancho chili powder? I have some Hatch red chile powder–would that work, or would plain chili powder be better?

    The hatch sounds wonderful. I’d use that.

    How would regular chili power do in the recipe?

    Great flavor profile. We used corn tortillas and they were a little too chewy for us. We will make this again and try flour tortillas. I could have doubled this recipe easily and all of it would have been devoured. Thanks!
