Number of Servings: 2


    # 2 Tilapia Fillets
    # 1 can Chipotle with Adobo Sauce, pureed
    # 3 oz Tortilla Chips, crushed
    # 2 tbs Olive Oil
    # Garlic Powder, salt and pepper - 1 Tbsp. EACH or to taste


Makes 2-5 oz servings

1.Place the crushed Tortilla Chips on a plate and add Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder; mix together.
2. Salt and Pepper the tilapia filets.
3. Smear the chipotle puree on ONE side of the filet and dredge in the tortilla chips (chipotle side only).
4. Heat the oil in a large skillet.
5. Place the filets, crust side down, in the hot oil, until golden brown and a nice crust forms (about 2-3 minutes), then flip.
6. Finish fish in a 350 degree oven about 2 minutes.

Notes: If spice is not your thing, mix the chipotle with a little sour cream before smearing it on the filets. And if tortilla chips are not available, use corn flakes.
