Fish Tacos :: Just Ingredients Recipe

I love to cook and try new recipes but like so many areas of life, I like to do things quickly without a lot of reading {wink}!  When it comes to cooking, I often throw things together, tasting as I go, making the same thing often, but it always turns out just a little differently.  I will also take food that I love, whether at a restaurant or from the store, read the ingredients and try to mimic it at home. 
An example of this throw everything together recipe is fish tacos.  We are not big fish people, so I am trying to be more creative at incorporating it into our diet.  I figured anything breaded was pretty safe!  My little experience with fish tacos is at the restaurant Rubio’s and I remembered that they serve theirs with some sort of white creamy sauce.  In our refrigerator that either means ranch or Caesar dressing.  I went with ranch and it was perfect!  I also had just a small amount of salsa left so I added some leftover corn, black beans, and chopped tomatoes to make it more fresh.  This also helps save money by using up leftovers to make new meals that taste like new.
The fish tacos were a hit and are now being added to my favorite meal staples!
Ingredients for Fish Tacos:
-Salsa {add leftover produce}
-Ranch dressing

I plan to share more “just ingredient recipes” with you so that we can learn from each other with quick and easy recipes!
Do you have your own “just ingredient” recipes?


  1. My friend Mrs. McG is a foodie and she makes these all the time. She uses frozen breaded fish too and calls it poor mans fish tacos. HA

  2. I love Fish tacos but never make them because the hubs don't like them (even though he loves fish, figures) I really need to incorporate more healthy options to our diet

  3. White Sauce
    1/4 c. mayonnaise
    1/4 c. plain yogurt
    1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    1 tsp. Mexican seasoning


  4. I have a southwest chicken recipe like this..
    chicken tenderloins, can of corn, can of black beans, both drained and rinsed. A jar of salsa and a can of chilies.. grill up the chicken and shred it and throw the rest in my cast iron skillet and heat and serve with rice..easy and delicious!!

  5. I'm afraid I just can't make myself jump on the fish taco wagon, they look good, but sound disgusting! LOL

    Keep posting recipes!

  6. Very lovely!! Thanks for this!!

  7. We make a version of these too. I've done tilapia in a beer batter where I actually did the leg work myself, but more often I use frozen breaded fish fillets. We call them "ghetto fish tacos" ;)

    PS Have you tried the spaghetti pie recipe from Deceptively Delicious yet? I don't remember a post on it but I could have missed it. Anyway I made it yesterday and it was a huge fail. I basically ended up with spaghetti and meatballs that took twice as long. It didn't really bake through even though I kept it in the oven for about 10 minutes longer than the recipe calls for. Hmmm... not sure what happened but let me know if yours turns out better!
