MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 11, 2014

Pretty good, the seasoning came off when I was cooking the fish so it didn't have a "southwest" flavor. I added some lime juice to the fish. I also substituted broccoli slaw for cole slaw since we don't like cabbage.

Loved it! Super easy, I used Mahi Mahi and topped with avocado. Also, shredded a small head of cabbage for the slaw.

MY REVIEW

I would omit the cilantro. I used coleslaw dressing and then Tartar sauce.

Very easy and tasty. I also left out the butter and put fresh avocados on top. Will definitely make again but will use flour tortillas instead. I used corn but thought it took too much away from the flavor.
