Baked Costa Rican Style Tilapia With Pineapples, Black Beans and Rice
You might be wondering what does a Costa Rican Tilapia taste like… I was too, when I saw this recipe posted on Food Network’s site by Ingrid Hoffmann. (host of the Food Network show, Simply Delicioso)
Every 3 months, my hairdresser cousin comes over on a weeknight, when my kids are already asleep to get my hair done. Since it’s summer and the kids don’t have school, I told her to come with her family so we can have dinner and her girls can play with my girls.
I thought I would make this dish for them since it had the carbs and the protein packed into one dish. I also thought it would be great for me to prepare the night before so that way when I come home from work, all I need to do is just combine some of my ingredients and pop it in the oven.
It worked out perfect. The dish came together nice and felt very Costa Rican. The flavors were very summery and tropical and our guests loved it! On the following day, they also made great burritos with the leftovers.
Please note that I did modify the original recipe to my own taste preferences, and made up my own tomato bean salsa. Hope you enjoy!
