  • 1 package (12.5 oz) Old El Paso™ Soft Taco Dinner Kit
  • 4 tilapia fillets
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons green taco sauce (Tabasco is fine too)
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 avocado, peeled and roughly sliced
  • 1 pinch coarse salt
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 cup red cabbage, sliced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges for serving


  • 1
    Start by pouring the taco sauce (from the dinner kit) over the tilapia fillets in a big bowl. Let marinate 20 minutes.

    In a food processor, combine the cilantro, 2 tablespoons oil, taco sauce, garlic, honey, 1 teaspoon taco seasoning mix from dinner kit, avocado and a pinch of salt. Pulse until combined and smooth. Set aside.

    Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large sauté pan; season the fish with salt and sear on both sides until cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes total. Remove fish from the pan and set aside.

    Back in the pan, add the red bell peppers and sauté for 3 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Season with a small pinch of salt and pepper.

More About This Recipe

  • Something seems fishy. I mean taco-y. I mean fishy. I mean fish taco-y. I know I'm 300% accurate when I say THE ENTIRE WORLD LOVES TACOS. Don't try to argue with me. This is hardcore factual evidence of life and living. I also know I'm 350% accurate when I say NOT THE ENTIRE WORLD LOVES FISH TACOS. Don't try to dispute me. This is do-or-die, unquestionable, smoking guns of life and living and eating. I know these things. So my goal here today is to bring that 350% down to like 27% or something. Eh? EH? Wait, I don't think that even remotely made sense. Let's get fishy! Place some good flakey fish in each tortilla, the red bells, some purple cabbage (yerms), and a good 45 dollops of chimichurri on each taco. And don't forget fresh cilantro and lime wedges, for extra bodacious-ness in your life. Go to town, baby.
