Preparing the Chili Beer Battered Cod 

ingredients for chili beer battered cod, cod, beer, flour, chugwater chili seasoning, baking soda

In a medium bowl stir together 1 cup flour, 1 cup beer (A lighter beer is recommended I used a Corona for this recipe. Avoid the darker beers.), ½ teaspoon baking powder, and 1 ½  tablespoons Chugwater Chili Seasoning (if you want it spicier us our Hot Chili Seasoning). Whisk until smooth.

Heat vegetable oil in a medium skillet until it reaches 350 degrees. You will want the oil to cover around an inch high in the pan. So that all sides of the fish can cook. 

Take a pound of cod and cut it into bite-sized strips. You can also do diced chunks depending on how you want your tacos to look.

Coat each strip or chunk of cod in the chili beer batter and add to the heated oil. Cook until they are golden brown.

Pull the cooked fish pieces from the oil and set them on paper towels or a wire backing rack to let the oil drain from the fish. 

Note: If you do not have cod you can use another white fish for this recipe. Catfish and even shrimp are easy to add and create these tasty tacos.
