12 Sinaloa flour tortillas, fajita size
1 lb. ahi poke
1 jalapeno, minced
2 Tbsp red onion, chopped
1 Tbsp green onions, chopped
2 Tbsp lime juice, fresh squeezed
½ tsp salt

Combine and mix ahi, jalapeno, red onion, green onions and salt in a bowl.  Place approximately 2 tablespoons of ahi poke mixture on each tortilla along with a few strips of roasted polbano chiles and cilantro.  Roll up tightly like a cigarette.  Skewer each flautas with a toothpick.  Cover and refrigerate until needed.
