Chipotle Lime Tilapia with Avocado Cream

Did you think I was joking when I said I'd be adding tilapia to the repertoire?  I wish! 

This recipe, found on pinterest (obviously), made the cut a few weeks back, and it was substantially better than my first attempt.

The tortilla chips gave the fish a nice crispy texture, and the heat from the chipotle pepper was awesome (I used extra adobo sauce for more heat). 

I served the fish (with heaps and heaps of avocado cream) atop Mexican rice, and I also whipped up a side salad topped with salsa ranch (salsa + light ranch + more adobo sauce = good salad dressing).  Tilapia is going to become a regular part of the rotation in our house, I'm afraid, so I'm learning to adjust.  Thank God for pinterest and all of the fishy ideas, or I'd be lost (and still eating chicken . . . happily).

Speaking of fishy, I really need some rain boots.

Fish = water = rain = rain boots.  Got it?  Or has my prolonged absence totally skewed my logic?  Both?  Either way, I like that these are a slightly more rock and roll version of a traditional rain boot, but with all of the practicality of a standard wellie.  Gotta add these to the wish must-have list.
