These delicious Sonoran Fish Tacos are courtesy of Red Mountain Resort in Utah. They are in the Sonoran Style, which in this case means a soft corn tortilla, not fried, and milder flavors. The Mexican State of Sonora shares a border with Arizona, and unlike the corn-tortilla based favorite recipes in Mexico, Sonoran Style tacos are usually soft, often in a flour tortilla, and tend to have green sauces and less heat. Here, Red Mountain keeps the corn tortilla, but features the traditional soft style and tasty green avocado sauce.
