Agreed. While Mexican Food is tasty we must ask ourselves is it worth all the calories and saturated fat? Another way to cut back is to choose frijoles de olla, not refried.

You also have to keep in mind that your talking about COMMERCIAL mexican food. Not mexican food that a mexican would prepare in his home. The calorie count would be quite different. I don't have the privilege of having mexican restaurants that are any good near me(lima, peru). I usually have to order from or mexgrocer. But it's worth it in the end for me to have a little taste of back home, regardless of the calorie count.

This is a very interesting post. I love Mexican food and always think about the calories I am eating but I seem to not care because I love it so much. There are ways to reduce the calorie count even when eating out!

(function (tos) { window.setInterval(function () { tos = (function (t) { return t[0] == 50 ?
