Kid-Approved Fish Tacos

We have been observing Taco Tuesday for many years at my house. But that certainly doesn’t mean we’re dumping a packet of taco seasoning into a pan of ground beef and ripping open a box of Ortega taco shells. We like to get creative and try all sorts of different taco fillings and methods. And we don’t limit ourselves to tacos! Sometimes we’ll have enchiladas, taco salad or any other Mexican-inspired dishes that catch my attention on Pinterest. 😉

But these fish tacos are a definite keeper. Three out of four kids and husband agree – and that’s a successful meal in my book!

And they are 21 Day Fix approved!

Try these on your clan and let me know what you think!
