{Crock Pot} Cilantro-Lime Fish Tacos




Crock Pot recipes are great around the holidays, especially if you have a lot of company coming over. I love making this fish taco recipe--it's not what you might expect at a holiday gathering but it tastes great and always goes over well.

Cooking fish in a slow cooker is so easy. The tilapia fillets go in frozen and the rest of the ingredients are just added on top. Nothing to pre-cook or prepare, just cook for 4 hours and they're done. Here's what you need:



Ingredients

6 frozen tilapia fillets, frozen
1 lg. can Rotel, drained
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1 1/2 Tbsp dried cilantro or 1/4 c fresh chopped cilantro
2 Tbsp lime juice
salt to taste
Soft taco shells

Directions

Place frozen tilapia fillets in the bottom of the Crock Pot.







Cover with Rotel, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and salt.





Cook on low for 4 hours. Flake the fish with a fork and mix well with the other ingredients. Spoon into soft taco shells.




Wasn't that easy? For more Crock Pot recipes, check out the Crock Pot page.

  1. Oh my goodness! Those look amazing! So much healthier than frying the fish! I've pinned and can't wait to make them!

  2. I have never seen a large can of Rotel. Should I use 2 normal size cans?

  4. Can I only use 4 filets and one can of regular size Rotel ? Would that be enough for just 2 people?

  5. I made this with two filets and a regular size can of rotel, which was a bit much. I scooped some tomatoes out before I flaked the fish. Cooked in 3 hours. This was awesome!
