Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.

"This recipe is ABSOLUTELY amazing!! All the guests visiting Estelle's LOVE it.. We will definately be making it again VERY soon.. This one is a must try! "

Estelle's Tilapia Poblano Tacos
3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 pound tilapia fillets
2 cups diced poblano peppers (about 2 large)
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 jalapeño pepper, minced
1 cup fresh corn kernels or frozen (thawed)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon salt
12 6-inch corn tortillas
1 avocado, cubed
3/4 cup prepared salsa
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro for garnish

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tilapia and cook until opaque in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and flake with two forks.

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pan and reduce heat to medium. Add poblanos, onion and jalapeño and cook, stirring often, until softened and starting to brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in corn, lime juice, cumin, oregano and salt. Cook, stirring often, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the fish and any accumulated juice from the plate.

Wrap tortillas in paper towels and heat in the microwave on High until warm and pliable, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Fill each tortilla with about 1/3 cup of the tilapia mixture and top with avocado, salsa and cilantro.
