Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion, red bell pepper, jalapeno, and garlic until slightly softened, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  3. Divide swai and vegetables among tortillas. Sprinkle Monterey Jack cheese on top.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute a banana pepper for the jalapeno pepper if desired.
