Fantastic recipe! This recipe will be a repeat for sure with variations. I do love sardines, but didn't have any on hand, so used smoked tuna fillets. I also crisped my tortilla in a dry pan on the stovetop. I only added onion to the avocado, and chose to put quartered grape tomatoes on top for visual appeal along with chopped cilantro, and added chopped purple cabbage to the lettuce layer. I was really impressed at how we could hold these and take bites out of them without them falling apart! Freddy Cat says thanks for Fiesta in his mouth! Made for the photo forum Cinco de Mayo event.
