Stay Healthy Fish Tacos...Make in 20...no kidding



YOU CAN MAKE THIS IN 20 MINUTES!!!!




Hi Readers.....Ok let me just share that this recipe is OH so simple good. So....grab your can of albacore tuna in water and favorite can of beans....and meet me in the kitchen:)




Ingredients:

1 can albacore tuna in water (drained)

1 15 oz can of beans of your choice (black, pinto, veggie refries for example) drain off water

Your favorite Salsa

1 package of taco seasoning (will use this to taste)

Crushed Red Pepper (also use this to taste)

1 Jar of sliced jalapeno peppers (the juice is wonderful to add to the fish)

1 Red pepper, chopped

1 Green pepper, chopped

1 Red onion, chopped (some will be cooked with peppers, and save a bit for fresh topping)

1 Avocado (sliced and quartered for fresh topping)

1 Small Bag shredded cabbage (another fab fresh topping)

Fat Free Sour Cream (optional, but I love it on mine)

La Tortilla Factory Hand Made Style Corn Tortillas (Chipotle Flavor is the Bomb!)


Heat a large skillet and spray with PAM. Chop the peppers and onion and add to the skillet. Sprinkle a little taco seasoning over the vegies, cook and fork stir until the peppers look a bit roasted and onions release juices. I am a taster at this point...so go right ahead and check the flavor and see if it is to your liking. Pour the pepper/onion mixture into a bowl and cover with a foil to keep warm. In the same heated pan, you will be splitting the pan in 1/2...tuna on one side and beans on the other (multi tasking here). Add your drained tuna on one side and begin forking apart. Add the beans on the other side. If they mix a bit...no big deal...all is good in the kitchen. Pour a bit of salsa over the tuna and sprinkle with a bit of taco seasoning mix and crushed red pepper, add a bit of jalapeno juice from the jar, and combine all the flavors. Again, taste test to see if the fish is to your liking...I like mine spicy...but everyone is different. On the bean side, add a bit of salsa to the beans and keep stirring to heat through. I sometimes add a bit of the taco seasoning mix to the beans as well. Once everything is heated through...we are ready to build. Heat a griddle prepared with PAM to warm the tortillas. Have ready your sliced avocado, remaining onion, bag of shredded red cabbage, fat free sour cream, and jalapenos (optional). Remove heated tortillas from the griddle and start building this healthy taco....fish and beans first, add cooked pepper and onions, a dab of fat free sour cream (optional), fresh chopped onion, jalapenos, shredded red cabbage and avocado. This will be messy good!!!! Have a fork on standby to not miss what drops on your plate. Let me know how you like these....this is absolutely one of my favorite meals and no kidding, I make it in 20 minutes. Less if you make it with a friend:)

Stay Healthy!!!!
