Expert Tips

  • While the taco shells are baking, heat some Old El Paso™ refried beans to serve with the finished tacos.
  • Skip the coleslaw mix and mayo and jazz up your Easy Fish Tacos with slaw. Purchase 2 pints of creamy coleslaw at the supermarket deli and stir in the taco seasoning mix.
  • Add bright citrus flavor by topping the finished fish tacos with a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
