Pan-Fried Tilapia with Chipotle-Tomato Sauce.... DELICIOUS!

Turn this little sucker
into a tasty dinner...

2 red tomatoes, diced
1 clove garlic (more to taste), minced
1 tsp chipotle powder (more to taste)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 white onion, chopped
1 TB butter
Flour for dredging

Sauce: Melt butter on medium heat; add garlic and onion (do not brown); add tomatoes and spices; you can also add a pinch of sugar and salt, which I found gave the tomatoes a nice sweet tang that blended very well with the slight spiciness; cook on medium-low for 15 mins. or until it reduces down a little
