This recipe is an example of a well-balanced meal with a little fat, a good protein source (fish, shrimp and cheese), fiber (beans, vegetables), good carbs (lettuce, tomato, vegetables) with an abundance of vitamins and minerals. And even a novice in the kitchen can follow the 6 easy steps.

You can use any type of pepper: sweet peppers, pablano, or something hotter like jalapeño and the hottest the habanero. Remember when you remove the seeds and cut hot peppers to wear gloves, or wash your hands thoroughly.

Shopping/to do list - serves 4:
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 pound white fish of choice, cut into bite size pieces
1/2 pound shrimp, peeled
1 Tablespoon Mexican or Taco seasoning
1 cup pepper mix, chopped
1/2 cup onion, sliced thin
1 cut tomato, diced
1 cup black beans, washed and drained
4 tacos and 4 tortillas
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
2 cups lettuce, shredded


1 - Heat oil in skillet. Season fish pieces with Mexican seasoning.
2 - Add fish to the skillet. Stir around for ± 2 minutes. Pre-heat the oven to 375°F.
3 - Add peppers and onion. Stir around for ± 1 minute.
4 - Add tomato and black beans. Stir around for 1 minute.
5 - Place tacos and tortilla on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for 10 minutes.
6 - Stuff tacos and tortilla with 1/4 of the mixer, cheese and lettuce.

Serve family style, which means place food on some colorful platters and sit around the table together, chatting about the daily things, being grateful for the gathering and the great food.
