  • blender
  • taco stands

  • 1 pound tilapia (in an Easy for You Grilling Pack seasoned with sriracha)
  • 1 cup red cabbage finely sliced
  • 1 cup pico de gallo
  • 12 white corn tortillas
  • ¼ cup crumbled Cotija cheese for topping

Avocado Cilantro Dressing

  • 5.3 ounces plain Greek yogurt 1 container
  • ½ avocado
  • ¼ cup cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice

  • Grill (or bake) tilapia according to package directions. (For one pound of tilapia fillets, we grilled ours on medium-high heat for about 12 minutes.)
  • While tilapia is cooking, mix together ingredients for the avocado cilantro dressing in a high-power blender or food processor until smooth. You may need to add more milk to reach desired consistency. Set aside.
  • Remove tilapia from the grill and flake with a fork.
  • Distribute tilapia, cabbage, pico, and Cotija evenly over the tortillas.
  • Top with a drizzle of dressing, or use the dressing for dipping.
