1 lb  fresh cod fillets
3 each  medium garlic cloves
10 each  Olives, green, manzanilla, stuffed
0.3333 cup  white wine vinegar
0 1/4 tsp  black pepper
2 tbsp  fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp  sugar
0 1/4 tsp  chili powder
2 1/4 cup  cold water
4 oz  Chips, tortilla, light, baked
Directions
  1. Spray a deep nonstick pan with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add onion and sauté for 10 minutes, stirring often.

  3. Add in the olives, vinegar, and pepper, cook for 10 minutes; stir often.
