With homemade pico de gallo and spicy fiesta sauce.
The sauce is originally from Applebee's Fiesta Lime Chicken and I got the recipe from America's Most Wanted Recipes.

The first order of business was to make the Pico de Gallo. I just made the recipe off the top of my head since I already knew what ingredients to use, but I searched for a recipe after and found out what I did was almost exactly like this recipe here. Ingredients: onion, tomatoes, jalepeno, lime juice, and you can add avocado too but I didn't have any on hand and forgot to grab one at the store.
I use my nifty Vidalia Chop Wizard to quickly chop up all my ingredients. After prepping them it took about three minutes to chop everything!
Diced tomatoes in a snap!
And a diced jalepeno pepper too! I used the insert to make smaller dices than what I used for the the tomatoes and onion.
(I don't get paid to talk about the vidalia chopper or anything, and honestly I only really use it to make salsa!).
Mix up all the ingredients and you're good to go. I wish I had thought to make it yesterday so it could sit in the fridge and marinate and soften a little, but oh well! It was still good today.
Next up was the sauce or "dressing" from the Fiesta Lime Chicken recipe.
|Ignore the shredded cheese and crumbled corn chips--they are toppings for the chicken recipe!|
The recipe is easy enough--just mix up the ingredients and you're done! I found it quite spicy so I might dilute it with a little more sour cream, but my husband likes it the way it is.
|This sour cream is so delicious I don't think I'll ever use another kind ever again!|
We made frozen fish from Costco. It was breaded cod since that was all we had--and I thought I would've preferred unbreaded--but it actually turned out really well. We liked the crispyness of the fish in the taco with the vegetables. I think it would've been good either way though!
