  • In large skillet, heat oil and add tilapia filets. Cook until fish releases easily with a spatula; flip and cook until fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside, tenting loosely with foil to keep warm.

  • Add beans, corn, water, salsa, cumin, chili powder and contents of rice package to skillet, stir well. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Simmer until water has been absorbed and rice is tender, about 7 minutes.

  • Place rice in a serving dish and top with fish. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note:

The heat of this dish can be altered easily by adding or decreasing the salsa (mild, medium or hot) and garnishing with jalapeno or chili pepper slices.

This was fast and easy! I broiled the fish with garlic pepper cayenne pepper and olive oil. I also used organic black beans I made ahead of time and keep in the freezer for quick meals and I used organic long grain rice instead of boxed. I picked from the last of my garden 3 Roma tomatoes garlic onion small yellow bell pepper and blended. I added cumin vegetable bouillon and a pinch of cayenne with 4 cups water and 2 cups rice then a bag of frozen corn. Boiled for 15 minutes. Very easy my family loved it. It was not too spicy if you use only a little cayenne. Read More

This dish was really tasty and fairly easy to make! I just made a few changes based on what I had on hand. 1) I seasoned fish with adobo cumen and a light dusting of salt and then baked it in the oven at 425 for about 15 minutes. 2) I added fresh onion and yellow pepper which I just sauted in a skillet to add to the rice mix. I would make this again in a heart beat! Read More
