What is your favorite Mexican inspired dishes? I, personally am looking for something with out black beans or avocado. I would love to have a Build Your Own Nachos night but not sure how calorie friendly I could make it. I just had fajitas the other night with chicken and lots of peppers and onion. just topped mine with low fat sou cream, lots of salsa, and a little cheese, no tortilla. So yummy

I love Mexican foods! Enchiladas are great if made with lean beef, low fat cheese, FF refried beans and La Torilla Factoty tortillas. The enchilada sauce is very low in calories. Top them off with LF sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, etc!

Despite being Mexican, I don't celebrate Cinco De Mayo.

My most recent favorite dish is Kale Enchiladas

Otherwise, I'm pretty boring. I love beans. I'm making a large batch in my crockpot today.

(Although there are some other dishes I love that aren't very diet friendly...)

Haha, I'm celebrating Cinco de Mayo the American way... with Southwest Turkey burgers... see, they have guacamole on them and mexican four cheese blend, which clearly makes them Mexican. Oh, and they use pork a lot in Mexican cooking, so my use of bacon is also justified.

my fav has to be fish tacos. Grill a nice mahi mahi on the grill in some lime, garlic and cilantro, add to corn tortillas and top with shredded cabbage, and a salsa I make from cilantro that is heavenly!

Fajitas. Steak or chicken strips with all different colors of peppers and onions folded in fresh tortillas. Later in the summer, I also cook vegetarian fajitas with grilled eggplant, zucchini, and crookneck squash instead of meat.
