  • 1 can black beans or favorite beans⁣
  • 2 cups jasmine rice⁣
  • 4 cups chicken broth or water ⁣

Fish Tacos:⁣

  • 1 lb cod or tilapia filets⁣
  • 3 oz tortilla chips crushed to make 1 cup crumbs⁣
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning ⁣
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil⁣

Spicy Avocado Crema:⁣

  • 2 avocados pitted and diced ⁣
  • ½ cup sour cream⁣
  • ½ cup avocado mayonnaise ⁣
  • Juice of 1 lime⁣
  • Dash of kosher salt and pepper⁣
  • 1 jalapeno roughly chopped, seeds removed if desired for less heat⁣


  • Red cabbage shredded ⁣
  • Cotija cheese crumbled⁣
  • Cilantro roughly chopped ⁣
  • Scallions diced⁣
  • Sriracha aioli hot sauce ⁣or favorite salsa
  • Radishes thinly sliced and pickled, if desired
  • Grape tomatoes diced
  • Avocado sliced


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. ⁣
  • In a medium stock pot, heat water or broth.  Once boiling, turn heat down to low.  Add jasmine rice and cover.  Cook according to package instructions or until liquid is mostly absorbed.  Fluff with a fork when done.⁣
  • Heat undrained black beans over low heat in small pot.⁣
  • While rice and beans are cooking, prepare fish.  Combine taco seasoning and tortilla crumbs in a shallow bowl and prepare a baking sheet by spraying with non stick cooking spray. ⁣
  • Pat cod pieces dry with paper towels. Drizzle lightly with olive oil, tossing them gently with hands or a spatula to coat evenly. Working in batches, place a few pieces of cod into the bowl with tortilla chip crumbs and press crumbs into fish to form a coating all around each piece. ⁣
  • Place coated fish pieces in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and lightly spray each piece with cooking spray. Bake for 5-10 minutes, until pieces are cooked through and light golden brown. ⁣
  • While fish is cooking, combine all ingredients for avocado cream in food processor. Blend until smooth. Set aside.⁣
  • Once fish is done cooking, break up fish with spatula into smaller pieces. It should easily crumble.⁣
  • Place fish, rice, beans and toppings in bowls and allow everyone to build a bowl to their liking!⁣
