Fish Tacos

What’s better than a regular taco?

I mean, really Invisible Friends, let’s think about this.  What could be better than ground beef, beans, melted cheese all wrapped up in a warm corn tortilla?

Fish tacos, of course!

Ya’ll know I like beef.

In fact, I love beef.  Beef ribs, tacos, fajitas, enchiladas….Beef stews, beef burgundy, beef tips and rice, chicken fried steak, regular steak, burgers, meatloaf, chili, meatballs,  mini burgers…

But I digress.

However, even though we live in the land of cacti and tumbleweeds rather than on the coast, I’ve discovered the glories of tilapia, which lets me have all the inexpensive white fish my little duckie heart could desire.

And it was only a matter of time before I turned it into a taco.  I live in South Texas, ya’ll.  We turn everything into tacos.

First, you cook the fish in a skillet with onions and chopped green and green peppers with a splash of vegetable oil.

Then, you heat up your corn tortillas (the traditional way is to heat them in oil, but occasionally we try to eat somewhat healthy in the Pond.)

Sprinkle some cheese, add some black beans and rice and you’re set.

In fact, I think I’ll go have some now.

Excuse me.

Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  Tomorrow we have a new Twirl and Saturday, a new Creative Woman of the Pond, Natasha from Living in the Kitchen with Puppies!  Stay tuned!
