If you want to give your tastebuds a kick on Fridays during Lent there are plenty of places to do so. Clearly, some of our budgets can't always afford Red Lobster every Friday while Lent is around. Besides our palate also likes to spice up things especially when it comes to food.

Well, since Lent is kind of a big deal in El Paso some Catholics skip eating meat every Friday until Easter rolls around. By meat, that means steak, beef, chicken, and yes, even turkey. The only other protein we can eat on Fridays during Lent is anything that belongs to the seafood group.

There are quite a few places with some out of the out of this world aguachiles in El Paso. Some of the places my family and friends enjoy a good plate of aguachiles vary in their own unique way.
