One of our favorite nights of the week in the Schwartz household is TACO NIGHT!! We usually have a mixture of soft and hard taco shells with taco hamburger meat and lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and sour cream. Always delicious! But, to mix things up a bit, I’m taking the McCormick’s Pinterest Taco Night Challenge and making something totally different – Fish Tacos with Jalapeno Mango Slaw.

McCormick sent me a collection of spices to be used to create a meal for my family and I ended up using McCormick Gourmet Collection Diced Jalapeno Peppers, Sicilian Sea Salt and Garlic Powder.


All three were a perfect compliment to this meal. Having never used “dried” jalapeno peppers, I wondered how the flavor would turn out and it was great and no burning fingertips from cutting up the fresh ones!

This recipe seems like it will take a little while to prepare, but it really doesn’t. It took me about 40 minutes from preparing the marinade to serving it! Not bad at all! Even for a weeknight!

Try this recipe for Fish Tacos with Jalapeno Mango Slaw the next time it’s Taco Night at your house. And if you’re looking for meal ideas for Lent, this one is a winner!
