My Mexican food health ideas:
*use sprouted grain tortillas rather than white flour ones
*use vegetarian canned refried beans to sidestep lard
*cook your own refried beans from dried beans, season with spices rather than salt
*make fresh pico de gallo (Sarah Kramer's recipe in the Garden of Vegan is amazing!) or salsa
*use sauteed veggies to "beef" up burritos and tacos in a low-fat way: squash, zucchinis, and sweet potatoes work great
*use unexpected fillings such as crumbled polenta or Spanish Quinoa
*use vegan cheese, dairy cheese (for dairy eaters) sparingly, or just sprinkle on some nutritional yeast
*serve some raw veggies on the side: cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, avocado slices, cucumber, etc.
Here's some recent fiesta food!
