10 minute tacos

It is great to have a few weeknight meals that can be thrown together in no time, with very few ingredients.  Our 10 minute fish tacos are just that sort of recipe.


  • 2 tilapia filets (about half a pound)
  • chipotle powder
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • a handful of cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 4 whole wheat tortillas
  • 15oz can of black beans
  • 1 cup of baby spinach

Heat the black beans over medium heat until warmed through, about 5-6 minutes.

Combine the avocado, onion and tomatoes in a bowl.  Season with salt and pepper for a quick fresh salsa.

Season the tilapia filets with a dusting of chipotle powder.  Heat in a non-stick pan over medium heat, 2-3 minutes per side.

Heat the tortillas over a gas burner, or toss in the microwave for 30 seconds.

With all the ingredients put together in less than 10 minutes it is time to make some tacos!
