The creamy sauce offers a cool counterpoint to the bold blackening spices. Not in the mood for tilapia? The recipe is also great with chicken, sliced flank steak, or shrimp. Toss some avocado, tomato, and cilantro into the mix, and you're ready to knock Taco Tuesday out of the park.
How to Make It
Heat a grill pan over medium-high. Coat pan with cooking spray.
Sprinkle fish evenly with chili powder, 3/8 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, red pepper, and cumin. Add fish to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Cut each fillet into slices.
Combine mayonnaise, pickle relish, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a small bowl. Heat tortillas according to package directions.
Divide fish, avocado, and tomato evenly among tortillas. Drizzle tacos evenly with mayonnaise mixture; sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
A hefty amount of toasty cumin adds deep flavor to quickly seared shrimp, while a wee bit of ground red pepper punches above its weight, contributing a fair amount of heat. Don’t worry, though—once the shrimp gets tossed into corn tortillas with avocado, rice, and beans, the heat is muted so the tacos are perfectly seasoned. Be sure to reserve a bit of the bean liquid before you drain the beans; that liquid helps bring the chunky mash together. If your family doesn’t love shrimp, you can make the tacos with an equal weight of cubed, boneless, skinless chicken thighs.
How to Make It
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add shrimp, 1 teaspoon cumin, and pepper; cook 5 minutes or until done, stirring occasionally. Remove shrimp from pan. Drain beans in a colander over a bowl, reserving 2 tablespoons liquid. Add beans, reserved liquid, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, and chili powder to pan; cook 3 minutes, mashing beans with a fork.
Working with 1 tortilla at a time, heat tortillas over medium-high directly on the eye of a burner 15 seconds on each side. Divide bean mixture, rice, shrimp, pico, onions, and avocado evenly among tortillas. Garnish with cilantro leaves; serve immediately.

Restore the body in a number of ways with the antioxidant-packed strawberry. Not only is this juicy, red fruit loaded with vitamins A, B-complex and E, but it contains zinc, iron, manganese, and other essential minerals. Their rich vitamin C content can help strengthen your immune system by protecting you from any flu or cold that may be going around your home or workplace. If you are suffering with lupus, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, COPD or another autoimmune disorder, the anti-inflammatory effects of the rich phenol content in strawberries can offer fantastic support.
The blueberry is a popular berry for its delicious taste and incredible healing properties, many of which have yet to be discovered. Antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals abound in this tiny, powerful fruit. If you’re looking to improve your cognitive abilities or offer your circulatory system greater support, making blueberries a regular part of your diet can be very helpful. The larger cultivated blueberry offers some wonderful health benefits, but the smaller wild blueberry exceeds it and all other foods in its healing might. For this recipe, feel free to use cultivated blueberries, wild blueberries, or a delicious mix of both.
The kiwi fruit doesn’t look like much from the outside, but once you slice one open you’ll see the stunning interior.
The banana is filled with essential trace minerals and macro minerals. The potassium found in a banana is incredible for helping to support neurotransmitter function. A rich creation of electrolytes can stem from the combined efforts of the banana's bioavailable potassium and abundant amino acids. If you’re in need of digestive assistance, bananas may be able to help. If you suffer from a hyperactive colon and small intestinal tract, this natural antispasmodic can aid in offering relief as well.
Once you learn just how amazing the orange is, you will begin to celebrate each time you get the chance to snack on this miraculous fruit. The high level of flavonoids and limonoids found in oranges and their fellow citrus, the tangerine, help to ignite the coenzyme glutathione, which is abundant in these two fruits. Oranges and tangerines will be a vital piece of battling the global chronic illness issue thanks in part to this particularly powerful connection between the flavonoids and limonoids and the glutathione.
