I was in the mood for the tacos, but not for all that dredging and frying.
Fortunately, we had a stash of really good fish sticks (pollock, I believe) from Costco in the freezer, some leftover shredded cabbage, onion and carrot, and a can of refried black beans in the pantry. Now, for a sauce of some sort…
*Available from The Spice House, or, you could use a half-packet of buttermilk ranch dressing mix.
Easy Fish Tacos:
•1 can refried black beans
•Shredded cabbage, onion, carrot
•Fresh tomato, diced
•Pepperjack cheese, shredded
Heat the refried beans on the stove or in the ‘wave.
To serve: spread a bit of the black beans on a tortilla, top with the cabbage mixture, then the fish sticks and tomato. Drizzle with the dressing and add a squeeze of fresh lime juice, if you like.
Nice tacos, and easily worth the no-fuss.
