converting graphics to tile coords

Okay, so I'm working on a 2d isometric opengl sprite based engine. First off, I use textures quads for sprites (including tiles). Here's some code(it's just an example please don't critique my code) showing how I render tiles.

for (x = 0; x < MAP_WIDTH; x++)
    for (y = 0; y < MAP_HEIGHT; y++)
          // since the tiles are isometric i have to offset them when drawing
          // to get them to display properly
          offset tile (TILE_PIXEL_WIDTH/2)
          offset tile (TILE_PIXEL_HEIGHT/2)

Now what I need to do is to be able to check which pixel(in opengl coordinates) the mouse if on(which is no problem) and then take this pixel and figure out which tile the mouse is on. So basically I need to be able to convert opengl coordinates to my isometric tile coordinates. Anyone have any idea of how I should go about this?
