I love, love, love Mexican food. Good Mexican food is one of the things that I miss dearly now that I live in Virginia instead of my home state of California. I do make my own Mexican food, usually enchiladas or tacos on a weekly basis. Recently we have been making fish tacos!

McCormick Seasoning

In the following Baja Fish Taco recipe I used McCormick chili powder, garlic powder and salt. The McCormick Chili Powder gives the recipe a little zip of spice without being too spicy. I simply mixed the seasonings with cornmeal for a light crust for the fish.

The sweetness of the coleslaw combined with the spices makes for a wonderful flavor. Plus, this meal is rather quick to make!
