Chimichurri Aioli

  • 1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
  • 1/3 cup packed fresh parsley
  • 3/4 cup packed fresh cilantro
  • 1 small clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

Crispy Fish Filling

  • Vegetable oil for deep frying
  • 1 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups Mexican beer
  • 1 lb firm white fish fillets (such as cod)
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt

Tortillas and Toppings

  • 8 Old El Paso™ Stand 'N Stuff™ taco shells, heated as directed on package
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 2 jalapeño chiles, thinly sliced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


Step 1 In food processor, place Chimichurri Aioli ingredients. Cover; process, using quick on-and-off motions, until smooth. Empty into bowl, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Step 2 In deep fryer or heavy saucepan, heat at least 2 inches oil to 350°F. While oil is heating, mix flour and beer in medium bowl. Cut fish fillets into cubes. Dip cubes into batter, and fry fish in batches, about 3 minutes per side, until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on paper towels; sprinkle lightly with salt.

Step 3 Fill each taco shell with fish, cabbage, a dollop of aioli and chiles. Serve with lime wedges.
