  1. Combine all of the slaw ingredients and set aside.
  2. Make the tartar sauce: In a blender puree the chiles and remaining ingedients until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Make the Fish Tacos: In a bowl, whisk beer, flour, and salt until well blended.
  4. Rinse fish and pat dry; cut crosswise into 1-inch-wide strips.
  5. Pour about 1 inch of oil into a 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pan (with at least 2-in.-tall sides) over medium-high heat; bring oil to 360°. With a fork, dip each piece of fish into beer batter; lift out and let drain briefly. Slide fish into oil, a few pieces at a time, and cook until golden (adjust heat to maintain 360°), turning if necessary to brown on all sides, 2 to 4 minutes per batch. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet. Keep warm in a 200° oven while you fry remaining fish.
  6. To assemble each taco, stack two tortillas and top with a couple of pieces of fish, then a spoonful of cabbage and cilantro slaw. Serve with the chipotle tartar sauce to add to taste and lime wedges to squeeze over the top.
