  • One can of corn drained
  • One can of Rotel drained
  • One can of Black Beans drained and rinsed
  • Fresh cilantro chopped
  • Taco seasoning store-bought or homemade (optional)


  • 1. Heat 2 Tbsps. olive oil in a non-stick skillet.
  • 2. Rinse and pat dry the two Tilapia fillets. Season with taco seasoning if desired.
  • 3. Place Tilapia fillets in heated skillet and cook 3 minutes per side. Do not move the fillets while they're cooking. To flip, take a spatula and slowly slide it under the fish fillet to prevent it from tearing.

  • 5. Place cooked Tilapia chunks on tostada shells and top with corn/tomato/bean mixture. Sprinkle on some cilantro.


To make homemade taco seasoning mix together:
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp minced onion
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
