Fresh Tuna Tacos

I am always trying new variations of one of my favorite meals...seafood tacos. This recipe turned out delicious, light, and fresh...perfect on a hot summer day. I hope this recipe brings brightness and light to your meal.

Here is how.
1. In a small bowl combine:
- 3/4 tsp. chili powder
- 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp. sugar
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/8 tsp. chipotle pepper

2. Rub the spice mixture on both sides of a 1 pound Ahi tuna fillet (sashimi grade).

3. Heat a grill pan over high heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray and grill the tuna for 2 minutes on each side until medium rare (or your desired degree of doneness). Slice the tuna steaks into strips.

4. Warm 8 corn tortillas according to the package directions. Divide the tuna among the tortillas.

5. Top each tortilla with:
- Avocado (chopped)
- Fresh salsa
- Fresh cilantro (chopped)
- Cheddar cheese (shredded)
- Light sour cream (make sure it is gluten free)
- Dried chili pepper flakes
- Green onions (finely chopped)

Here is to fresh summer flavors! xo
