Coming across this on Pinterest was a great discovery.  The spice mixture featured in this recipe from Buzzfeed has become a staple in my house.  I have used it on tilapia like the recipe calls for but I have also used it on beef and chicken.  My personal favorite pairing is the spice mixture and chicken.  The other night, I used it on chicken breast and we ate that with salsa over the top and chips on the side.  It was excellent.  We’ve done all of these variations with corn tortillas, I’m not sure how it would be with flour tortillas.  I highly recommend that even if you don’t like fish tacos, at least give the spice mixture a try on other things.  I’ve linked the original recipe below for you to check out.


BuzzFeed’s Easy Fish Tacos From Pinterest

My favorite variation on this recipe is definitely my chicken and brown rice nachos.

Chicken and Brown Rice Nachos

Chicken & Brown Rice with the spice mixture from the Buzzfeed easy fish tacos recipe. I added green beans and cheddar cheese and made some tortilla chips.

Chicken & Rice mixture

1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice

1/2 cup cooked shredded chicken

1/2 cup French cut green beans

1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Buzzfeed recipe spice mixture:
