Fish Tacos

In case you were wondering if the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, rest assured, Cowgirl's husband was literally GRUNTING as he ate this. I mean, seriously. Grunting. And Umm. And, Ugh. And, Ohh. And Ugh, And whatever grunting sounds a man makes. Good Lord.

But I watched and I learned.
Pinto Beans, White Northern Beans, Kidney Beans, and can of corn - all drained. A can of green chilies, some onion, some salsa, lime juice and you mix that all up and top it with cod and shrimp in a pan, top with some parmesan and cover it with foil. Bake it on the grill (or in the oven) until the fish is done, layer it on tortillas with shredded cheese and sour cream and it's heaven. Utterly heaven.

I wanted to grunt while I was eating it. But I didn't. We made asparagus also, by putting it in a package of tin foil with butter, salt and pepper and grilling it alongside the taco innards. It was amazing. It must be asparagus season!

All in all, it was an amazing meal. And frankly? I don't care for shrimp, but the cod was cheap and if that's what you stuck to? This would be a dang inexpensive meal.

mmm.. I love fish tacos - I never had them made this way, but it sounds good!

It IS asparagus season! Eat all you can get your hands on, it doesn't get better than this.

What about making them with rattlesnake meat?

The words "fish" and "tacos" do not go together at all. Whenever I've heard those words together, I've gagged. But what you made here sounds edible.
