Cilantro Lime Tilapia Tacos

1 lb tilapia filets, rinsed and pat dry
1 tsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 jalapeno peppers, chopped, seeds removed for less heat.  I only use one jalapeno- add to your taste
2 cups diced tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 Tbsp lime juice (2-3 fresh limes)
salt and pepper to taste
8- white corn tortillas (5")
1 medium avocado, sliced
lime wedges and cilantro for garnish

Heat olive oil in skillet.  Saute onion until translucent, then add garlic, mix well.  Place tilapia in the skillet and cook until the flesh starts to flake.  Add the jalapeno pepper (I throw these in with the garlic), tomatoes, cilantro, and lime juice.  Saute over medium heat for about 5 minutes, breaking up the fish to get everything mixed well.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Heat tortillas on a skillet a few minutes on each side to warm (no oil needed).  Serve a generous 1/4 cup of fish on each warmed tortilla, with a slice or two of avocado and then just ENJOY!  I also use a little bit of my FF plain greek yogurt (like sour cream) on each taco.  Another idea is to add shrimp to the taco.
