    Tacos are an anytime win. They can be small enough to satisfy snack hunger or hearty enough for an evening meal. I really enjoy fish tacos. This is a win-win, Peggy.

      Hi Cheri! Thanks so much. Tilapia tacos are ridiculously easy and it is a quick way for families or those single and working to get something satisfying onto the table quickly. I’ve been loving your Arizona gems and recipes! The Pinterest was a big job with still a bit of tweaking to do but at least now I’m on the right page… now on to the next items… See you soon.
