Tilapia Tacos with Cherry Chipotle Salsa

I love tilapia and cherries so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it. My dear boyfriend was scared for his life when I called him to bring me some rather odd items from the grocery store on his way home from work. I assured him I was not crazy, and that he would love what I had in store for dinner. I changed the recipe just a tad and added my own style to it, Simply Gluten Free has the original recipe.
2 cups thawed frozen sweet cherries, cut into quarters
1 glove garlic, minced
¼ cup red onion, roughly chopped
1 chipotle in adobo sauce pepper (or 1 -2 teaspoons pureed chipotle in adobo) – more if you like it spicier
¼ cup cilantro leaves
Juice of 1 lime
1½ teaspoons ground cumin
¾ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
6 (4 – 6 ounces each) tilapia fillets
2 tablespoons olive oil
12 corn tortillas
Now this is what I did…
Place the garlic and red onion in a food processor and pulse to chop.
                                             Add the chipotle in adobo
