Healthy Mexican recipes
Every cuisine has dishes that are considered indulgent, and Mexican food has its share of dishes that are high in carbs, fat and calories. However, there are also healthy Mexican dishes and healthy ways to prepare traditional Mexican fare. If serving a small crowd, consider recipes such as tofu burritos, chicken tortilla soup and tostada bowl salad. If you're celebrating solo, take a bite of these squash and goat cheese tostadas or throw together a cilantro lime rice burrito bowl with corn and avocado.
