What do you make for dinner when it is scorching hot; you have been busy all day with not much time to cook; and you have leftovers that need to be used? Well, there are really a lot of things that you can make, but I chose to make fish tacos this time. They were super easy, hardly took any time to prepare, and I got to use up my leftovers as well. Plus they were really delicious. Served with a tasty margarita especial, they made a perfect summer meal to enjoy out on our deck.
I fried some catfish in the deep fryer, and as that was cooking I heated up some small-medium tortillas and melted some cheese onto them. I like flour, but corn tortillas work just fine too. We had some leftover beans and a corn-tomato salad (both of these recipes can be found on earlier posts of mine) that we added to the tortillas, then added the fish that I cut into strips. We topped the tacos with salsa, sour cream and avocado slices. I also made some garlic French fries that we served along with the tacos, and enjoyed our quick, simple meal with a nice cool, refreshing margarita especial.

sweet and sour mix
a splash of lime juice
a splash of sprite or sparkling water
I prefer my margaritas on the rocks with no salt, but of course if you prefer them blended and served in a salted glass, that’s fine too. Enjoy them however you like.
