Number of Servings: 4


    1 lb tilapia fillets, rinsed and pat dried
    1 tsp olive oil
    1 cup onion, chopped
    4 garlic cloves, finely minced
    2 jalapeño peppers, chopped (seeds removed for less heat)
    2 cups diced tomatoes
    1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
    3 tbsp lime juice
    salt and pepper to taste
    8 5-inch white corn tortillas (I used La Tortilla Factory Fiber & Flax)
    1 medium avocado, sliced
    lime wedges and cilantro for garnish


Heat olive oil in a skillet. Sauté onion until translucent, then add garlic. Mix well.
Place tilapia on the skillet and cook until the flesh starts to flake. Add jalapeño peppers, tomatoes, cilantro and lime juice. Sauté over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, breaking up the fish with the spoon to get everything mixed well; season to taste with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, heat tortillas on a skillet a few minutes on each side to warm (no oil needed). Serve a little over 1/4 cup of fish on each warmed tortillas with a slice or 2 of avacado and enjoy!
