Outside of the {Chicken} Box

Last night I went out on a limb and made something that I wouldn't typically make, and it was SO yummy! I think it would be good with chicken too! And, I feel that it would be a great thing to serve when having friends over. It seems fancy and is super easy!

Tilapia Tostadoas with Chili-Lime Cream Sauce

Ingredients
1 lb. fresh tilapia
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 lime, halved
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
6-inch tostada shells
2 cups shredded cabbage mix
1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, and sliced (optional)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered (optional)



Sprinkle fish with 1/4 teaspoon of the chili powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Grill fish until flakes with a fork. (I used the George Forman) Break into chunks. Place on top of tostada shell. Top with chili-lime cream (see recipe for that below). Then add cabbage, avocado and tomatos. Squirt with lime for extra yumminess! :)


Chili-Lime Cream
In bowl squeeze 2 teaspoons juice from half the lime. Stir in sour cream, garlic powder, and remaining chili powder; set aside. Cut remaining lime half in wedges for serving.
