Tilapia Casserole with Jalapenos
and Spicy Mustard

For this recipe, we chose the Napa Valley Mustard Company Brand Habanero Mustard. It’s an extra hot and sweet mustard and lends itself to our preferred spiciness. Incorporating tilapia into a casserole dish is a great way to get your healthy fish in a fun and tasty meal.
