It's quicker to make fish tacos than the beef variety! We started with boxed fish burgers, added a little spice, then chopped them up and folded them into tortillas, along with lettuce and fresh pico de gallo. If I get the chance, I'll mix up the pico de gallo a little earlier in the day, but there's no harm done if I don't get to that until I'm preparing the rest of the meal. These are a crowd-pleaser, and easy to make for a crowd, too!
