These were amazing! The only change I made was adding Ancho Chile Pepper powder to the tilapia while cooking. Great recipe!

This were the best fish tacos EVER!

This was a good fish taco. It was hard to keep it from falling apart on a hard shell though. With typical taco meat and cheese, everything sticks better. Messy, but good.
