Tilapia Tacos YUM by A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Tilapia Tacos

Can I say YUM???

Tilapia Tacos for Two or Three depending how many you eat.

2-3 Tilapia Filets
1/4 cup Olive oil
Sweet White Onion (1/2 of a large one diced)
Red Bell Pepper (1 diced)
Green Bell Pepper (1 diced)
1 can of black beans rinsed
Touch of fresh garlic to taste
Cumin to taste
Red Pepper to taste 
2/3 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 Lemon squeezed
1/2 Tsp honey

1 large diced tomato
homemade guacamole
shredded lettuce
shredded cheese of choice

or use what you have at home!

Your favorite Corn Tortillas or Flour Tortillas

Using the olive oil in the pan, saute the onion, peppers and garlic until slightly cooked. Add the rinsed black beans and cumin, red pepper and any additional spices you like.  (picture is missing the red peppers, Terry was still chopping them.)

As the veggies begin to soften, cut up the Tilapia into bite size chunks and add to the mixture stirring as it begins to brown slighly on the edges and cook through solid white.

Premix the yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon and honey. This is your 'sauce'.

Heat up your tortillas and then fill them first with the hot Tilapia mixture. Follow through building your favorite taco using tomato, guacamole, lettuce cheese and the special sauce.  My hubby likes to add a touch of Tommy's salsa on top of everything.   Terry can pack away three or four of these as can our son-in-law.  I can only make one and maybe a half more.  

We eat them once a week.  A healthy alternative to beef tacos for sure.

For health and strength and daily Bread,  We give you thanks, O Lord.
Check in tomorrow for another tasty treat.
