Tuna-Guacamole Tacos

The masses have spoken!

And by "masses" I mean the 12 or so loyal followers who took my Facebook poll this week, and let me know they'd rather see tuna-guacamole tacos in action tonight instead of Shepherd's Pie.  (And of the 13 total votes received, I think someone actually voted twice.  Womp womp.)

Regardless!  Never let it be said that I don't value your opinion.

But let me also say that I made the Shepherd's Pie Tuesday night, and it was good.  Very good.  Are you sure you've chosen wisely?

You have!  Tuna-guacamole tacos.  So simple.  So refreshing.  Clearly, you're more excited about Cinco de Mayo than St. Patrick's Day, but ok!  You've made a delicious choice.

I've already said simple, right?  This is the five ingredients kind of simple.  I didn't even need a list!

I hit up Trader Joe's for some ahi tuna steaks, made a quick guacamole, and these bright and flavor-ful beauties were on the table in minutes.

Your biggest challenge will be not bathing yourself in the rich, velvety-smooth guacamole.

That will be hard.

My biggest challenge was to keep certain tuna-lovers away from the goods long enough to take a picture.

You'd think we don't feed the dude.

I served these tacos with brown rice and plenty of salsa.  I even mixed some salsa into my rice, and made...wait for it...salsa rice.

The good ideas just keep flowing, people, I can't help it.

Tuna-Guacamole Tacos
Adapted from Cooking Light Magazine
Yields 4 servings
1/2 c onion, diced
1 tbs fresh lime juice
2 avocadoes, peeled and mashed
1 lb yellow-fin or ahi tuna steaks
6-8 (6 in) corn tortillas
1 tbs fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)

Combine the onion, lime juice, salt/pepper, and avocados in a small bowl, and reserve.

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat, and coat with cooking spray.  Sprinkle the tuna with salt and pepper, and grill 2 minutes per side, or to desired degree of doneness.  Cut the tuna into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

Wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel, and warm in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.  Divide the avocado mixture and tuna evenly among the tortillas, and garnish with cilantro as desired.  Serve immediately.
