  • ¼ cup DORITOS® FLAMIN’ HOT® Limón Flavored Tortilla Chips blitzed into breadcrumbs, plus extra to finish
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 6 ounces lager
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 pound tilapia, divided in half lengthwise
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, to season the fish
  • 6 corn or flour tortillas
  • 1 cup pico de gallo
  • ½ cup shredded cabbage
  • ½ cup cilantro leaves, chopped
  • ½ cup chipotle salsa
  • ¼ cup Mexican crema
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


  1. In a food processor, blitz the chips into breadcrumbs. Add flour to combine.
  2. Whisk the egg, beer, mustard, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the flour and chip mixture, one tablespoon at a time, to the egg mixture. Whisk well to make sure there are no lumps, and until the texture resembles a thin pancake batter.
  4. In a large heavy-bottomed pot, heat 1 inch of vegetable oil over medium high.
  5. Season the fish with salt and coat each piece of fish in the batter. Then drop the fish into the oil. Fry until golden on the first side, about 2 minutes, then flip and repeat.
  6. Transfer the fish onto tortillas and top with pico de gallo, cabbage, cilantro, salsa, crema, Dorito crumbs, and a squeeze of lime to serve.
