Reviews for Fish Taco Bites
"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."
