Easy Fish Tacos

Prep time 10 mins
Start to Finish time 50 mins
Yield 6 servings (2 tacos each)
Old El Paso® products and easy fish fillets make quick work out of Mexican fare.


  • 1 package (10 to 12 oz) breaded or battered fish fillets (6 fillets)
  • 1 box (4.6 oz) Old El Paso® taco shells (12 shells)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix (any variety)
  • 6 cups coleslaw mix (from 16-oz bag)
  • Old El Paso® taco sauce, if desired

How to Make It

  1. Bake fish fillets as directed on package. Cut each fillet into bite-size pieces.

  2. Heat taco shells in oven as directed on box.

  3. In medium bowl, mix mayonnaise and seasoning mix; stir in coleslaw mix. Let stand 5 minutes. Fill shells with fish pieces and coleslaw mixture; top with taco sauce.                                                                                  

  4. Serve With: While the taco shells are baking, heat some Old El Paso® refried beans to serve with the finished tacos.

  5. Time-Saver: Skip the coleslaw mix and mayo. Purchase 2 pints of creamy coleslaw at the supermarket deli and stir in the taco seasoning mix.
