  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease one 8x12 inch baking dish.
  2. Rinse fish fillets under cold water, and pat dry with paper towels. Lay fillets side by side in the prepared baking dish. Pour the salsa over the top, and sprinkle evenly with the shredded cheese. Top with the crushed corn chips.
  3. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until fish is opaque and flakes with a fork. Serve topped with sliced avocado and sour cream.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

The topping was good, but not with the fish. I will try it again with chicken. Sorry Christine.

OMG, I don't see how this could get any easier! I used talapia and baked for 30 min. No measuring, just dumped the ingredients on, and it tasted EXCELLENT!

This was excellent. My boyfriend DEVOURED this. I used catfish instead as I think cod fish is very "fishy". My only concern with this meal was that it was kind of watery in the dish while cookin...

Abosultely delicious. I can't wait to make this for company. So easy and so good. You must try this if you want a fun new fish recipe. I would cook this for 30 minutes instead of 15 though a...

WOW! I made this for my 7-year-old son and best friend and they raved! Alek got on the phone with his dad and announced that this was "his favorite meal"! Like some of the other reviewers, I mad...

This was so good, and so simple. Like other reviewers, I used boneless chicken tenderloins instead of fish. I used Safeway's Select Mild Southwest Style salsa, crushed Doritos corn chips, and ...

Wow this was terrific for something so easy, quick and everything goes right from the package to the baking pan, so there is only one pan to clean up. Although I can't say I've never tasted any...

Quick and easy to prepare. Tasty, especially for those family members who normally do not like fish dishes.
