Fish Tacos with Tequila Lime Avocado Creme

I’ve tasted my fair share of fish tacos. It’s my favorite tropical vacation food. These are the best ever. The thing that puts them on a different level from all others? The absolutely gorgeous and delicious avocado creme. Light with a hint of tequila and lime, it is the perfect base for deliciously seasoned Mahi Mahi. Absolutely glorious.

Homemade Taco Seasoning

I love taco seasoning. I use it all the time to make lots of Mexican type dinners. I also find it to be a great way to use up chicken. Toss some seasoning and simmer a bit – perfect for a quicky meal. However I recently started paying attention to the sodium in my food. That stuff is in EVERYTHING. I was devastated when I read the back of my trusty seasoning jug. Gulp. Surely there was a way I could get the yummy taco flavoring without all the added salt.

Hooray! I found one. This seasoning is every bit as delicious and versatile as the store-bought variety, but you control the ingredients. No salt to be found.

Add your spices to an airtight container. I re-used my old (empty…that’s how much I use this stuff) McCormick container.

Shake it up. Looks just like the real thing – huh? Tastes even better!

Turkey Taco Cups

Mexican food is a big time favorite in my house. We have some variety at least once a week. And it seems that whenever I make tacos, I always have leftovers. Not enough really for another meal though. I hate throwing food away, leftovers especially. I mean, I already made all the stuff right? What a waste! So, I borrowed an idea from “Just Us” using wonton wrappers and my leftover taco stuff to create a quick and easy lunch. Used up all my leftovers, but put a new spin on them so I wasn’t bored with my food. I hate being bored with meals.
