Tequila Tacos


Tilapia Mix:

  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup of cilantro leaves
  • 4 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. tequila
  • 4 tilapia filets
  • 1/4 green cabbage, shredded
  • 4 GF wraps*

Cream Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Add the garlic, cilantro, lemon juice, cumin, salt, pepper, and tequila into a food processor and blend until ingredients are mixed- but still chunky. Put the tilapia and the food-processed mixture in a gallon-sized zip lock bag. Move around the filets until each piece is covered and set aside for 15 minutes to allow for marination. Heat a non stick griddle to 375°F. After the 15 minutes, cook the tilapia for 3-4 minutes on each side. Serve as a taco- cut the tilapia into strips, place on a GF wrap, top with creme sauce and shredded cabbage. Eat fresh and enjoy!

*Rudi’s GF Plain Tortilla Wraps are great! But you can use any brands.
