We saw mozzarella sticks and tacos on the menu at a local restaurant and we we’re inspired to combine them.   This is a cheesy and saucy recipe that may not be healthy for you but it is certainly a cheat day treat.  You should try this at least once especially if you’re craving both mozzarella sticks and tacos.  Enjoy!
