Tilapia Tomatillo Fresco

A quick cooking main dish that’s not only delicious but healthy too!

Serves 4 / Prep Time: 5 mins / Cook Time: 10 mins


  • 1 to 1-1/2 pounds fresh tilapia fillets*
  • 2 tablespoons Southwestern-style seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups Cookwell & Co. Two-Step Green Chile Stew Mix
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled Mexican Queso Fresco cheese
  • Avocado Wedges and coarsely crushed corn tortilla chips as garnish



Season both sides of the fish fillets with the Southwestern seasoning. Heat the olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the fish and sauté for 2 minutes per side.


Pour the Two-Step Green Chili Stew Mix over the fish and scatter the queso fresco over the top. Cover pan, reduce heat to low and cook for 3 minutes, or just until cheese begins to melt.

Serve at once, garnishing each serving with avocado wedges and a toss of the crushed tortilla chips.

*You can also substitute boneless, skinless chicken breasts for the fish fillets. Cook chicken thoroughly before adding stew mix.
