I think these appetizers are better than full-size fish tacos I’ve had as an entree. Enjoy the creamy salsa drizzle not only on these bites, but also on other Mexican dishes. —Carmell Childs, Ferron, Utah

"These are wonderful! I made them for a young ladies' gathering at church (Apples of Gold) and they just raved about them! They were easy to make, even though I had to take things with me and cook the fish sticks just prior to the gathering. Unique and tasty, I will definitely be making these again! The only drawback was for the few leftovers, the chips did get a bit soggy after they had sat for a while. So, I wouldn't recommend making the appetizers up ahead of time, just have everything ready to assemble at the last minute."
