KID NOTE: The kids were not big fans of the bell pepper or avocado crema. They liked the tilapia and loved the beans. I served additional fresh veggies as a side.
VEGETARIAN TIP: Replace the tilapia with zucchini and sliced mushrooms. Skip the bacon in the beans.
GLUTEN MODIFICATIONS: Use corn tortillas.
Do I leave the grease from the bacon in or drain the bacon?
It’s completely up to you; but I like to leave it. Adds a lot of flavor.
Not super helpful for those who plan to use fish. I mis-remembered what protein I needed for this recipe, and defrosted steak.. “Screw it, we’ll give it a shot.” We didn’t change anything to accommodate the steak, just added sauteed onions (because they’re delicious). It was amazing. Next time, we’ll try the fish. No doubt this will work with chicken, too.
