4 tacos


  • 1 (15 ounce) can seasoned black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 2 ears corn, kernels cut from the cob

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 pound tilapia fillets

  • cooking spray

  • ¼ cup blackened seasoning

  • 4 (6 inch) corn tortillas

  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

  • 1 teaspoon Louisiana-style hot sauce (Optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Combine black beans, corn, olive oil, lime juice, and salt in a bowl. Gently stir until beans and corn are evenly coated; set aside.

  5. Place bean and corn mixture in the basket of the air fryer and cook for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through.
