Fish Tacos

I love tilapia and I love making these.   I’ve made them so many times that I have the recipe memorized.  I make this for two and a half people so the recipe doesn’t make very much.  If you have a bigger family or eat more you’ll want to double the recipe.

4-5 tilapia fillets (I buy the single packed frozen fillets)
1 TBl olive oil
Cajon Seasoning

In medium saucepan  put the oil on, cover tilapia with seasoning and fry.  I break mine up into  shredded pieces.

In the meantime combine and mix in a small bowl:

1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup sour cream
chopped cilantro (to your taste)
1-2 tsp cumin
juice from 1/2 lime

Now it’s time to eat:

Sometimes I use corn tortillas fried and other times I just use flour.  I combine the tilapia, the mayo/sour cream mixture and the top with shredded cabbage, and usually cheese (but we are cheese mongers at our house).


Chocolate Chunk Brownies

My neighbor has made these for us a few times and they are SO yummy!  I tried to make them and mine didn’t turn out because I used milk chocolate chips so make sure you use Semi Sweet.  Enjoy!

3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
12 ozs nestles SEMI SWEET chocolate chips (I use 16 ozs)
1 teaspoon vanilla (I usually add more)
2 eggs
optional:  1/2 cup pecans (if I use nuts I use more)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  In a small bowl combine flour, soda, salt and set aside (I never do this step).  In a saucepan combine butter, sugar and water and bring to a boil (I usually melt the butter with the water before I add the sugar).  Remove from heat and add 6 ozs of chocolate chips (I add 8 ozs) and vanilla.  Stir until morsels melt and mixture is smooth (sometimes I need to put it back on the stove).  Transfer to a large bowl.  Add eggs one at a time. Blend in flour mixture.  Stir in remaining chocolate chips  (and nuts if you’d like).  Spread into a greased 9 inch square baking pan.  Bake for 30-35 minutes.
