    Chef #796136's Note:

    Tilapia is a mild, sweet-tasting fish that lends itself to all kinds of flavors. It's a good substitute for flounder and orange roughy. Enjoy this Mexican-style tilapia dish with sweet corn and rice.

      This was a real crowd-pleaser! I made the following "personal touches":
      I used fire roasted tomatoes and added 1tsp Tajin Classic Seasoning (chili/lime salt) on the fillets. I also substituted a can of Bush's Grillin' Beans - Black Bean Fiesta flavor for the black beans, and used Knorr Mexican Rice and a bag of frozen southwestern style corn for the side dish. YUM! Tons of flavor in a low-fat, healthy meal!

      I love this recipe! It's quick and easy, and allows plenty of room for personalizing. I made it again tonight, using a variety of Mexican cheeses and a mango salsa in place of the tomatoes.

      Excellent flavor - I did take some liberties - I did not add the cheese I used 1 tbsp of lite mayo and a fresh tomato with added mexi spices. Bake time was 20 minutes
