fish tacos with chipotle sour cream

taco week day 5: fish tacos with chipotle sour cream
i have a secret to share. i can no longer go on having you think that i eat seafood. i don't. i hate it. it smells and it tastes funny. ugh, i know. okay, i feel so much better. this does not, however, mean i won't make it; especially since every other normal person loves it. i just have to suck up the smell every time i do. so i ate this but substituted the fish for black beans! regardless, the highlight of this dish is hands down the chipotle sour cream. you won't be disappointed.
