  1. Abosultely delicious. I can't wait to make this for company. So easy and so good. You must try this if you want a fun new fish recipe. I would cook this for 30 minutes instead of 15 though as after 15 minutes the fish was still raw inside. That could be because we used halibut - Read more ...
  2. Excellent recipe! I used Tilapia instead of cod and combined cheddar and pepper jack cheese for a little spice. Once baked I put the fish under the broiler for a few minutes to really crisp up the corn chips. Kids loved it!
  3. OMG I don't see how this could get any easier! I used talapia and baked for 30 min. No measuring just dumped the ingredients on and it tasted EXCELLENT!

  9. WOW! I made this for my 7-year-old son and best friend and they raved! Alek got on the phone with his dad and announced that this was "his favorite meal"!

  10. This was so good and so simple. Like other reviewers I used boneless chicken tenderloins instead of fish. I used Safeway's Select Mild Southwest Style salsa crushed Doritos corn chips and medium cheddar. Low Fat sour cream and avacados were used for the topping. My company loved it and the tiny portion of leftovers (from - Read more ...
