Gorton’s & Ortega Fish Taco Fiesta Challenge

WeLoveFishTacos!WoodenSignWell, I wasn’t so excited to take on this challenge. I mean really? Fish tacos? My first thought was “gag”! Hey, I’m being honest. Remember from my last Gorton’s giveaway? I’m not a big fish eater.

I pulled myself up by my boot straps and decided to give it a go. I’m always telling my boys how they have to try new things so I needed to put my money where my mouth was.

This past week we had our Fish Taco Fiesta. Let me tell you, I was shocked at how good it was! I mean REALLY good.

Here’s what our meal consisted of to start off with:

IMG_3663I like seasoning with my tacos so I chose the Garlic & Herb Crunchy Fish Fillets. I also made the Popcorn shrimp just in case my boys weren’t thrilled with the fish fillets.

We haven’t had an actual taco around here for ages. We always have nachos. It’s just easier and there’s no dripping down the arm of the juices. Well, with fish tacos, there’s no dripping grease either!

IMG_3667My son took the Ortega taco shells and crushed them so they were like nacho chips. My other son tried to the taco but it cracked in half so he ate one side with food on it then the next.

I on the other hand was able to keep my taco together and absolutely loved it. I had two of them. One with the shrimp and the other with the fillets. I had them the next day for lunch, too!

My fish taco consisted of:

  • Avacado
  • Tomato
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Taco Sauce
  • Ortega Shells
  • Ortega Refried Beans
  • Gorton’s Garlic & Herb Crunchy Fish Fillets
