Zesty Lime-Fish Tacos

44th Pillsbury Bake Off Category Winner Winner of Dinner Made Easy Category - Kellie White's Zesty Lime-Fish Tacos

I am not sure how this made the final four. It is ok, but I just don't see a million dollars. Making tortillas out of biscuits was very creative, time consuming, but creative. It didn't really make a tortilla but more like a gyro bread. This bread product would have been better paired with chicken kabobs and feta to make a Greek style gyro then a taco. This was my first time using chipotle chiles in adobe sauce; what a powerful, flavorful little can of POW! These chiles will be making a come back in other recipes in my future.

I have been a bit out of control today. I did pull of making 3 of the 4 final recipes. Hope to post the results for all.
