Pan Seared Tilapia Bowls with Chipotle-Avocado Crema

This is quite a delicious dish.  The star of it though is the chipotle-avocado crema.  Yes, it has a little heat to it, but the flavors are outstanding!  It's also quite versatile.  Besides this dish, I like to put mine as dressing on sandwiches, in salad, or even use it as dip for tortilla chips.  Simply delicious!  Enjoy!

-1 cup plain Greek yogurt
-2 small limes, juiced
