What Are Some Healthy Options to Order at a Mexican Restaurant?

Mexican restaurants offer a wide range of options for diners. The best bets on a Mexican restaurant menu include dishes with salsa, plain soft tortillas, vegetables and beans (no lard). The portions are often large, so these items can be shared with a friend or taken home for a delicious meal the next day. 

For any items you are unsure about, many restaurants also post nutrition information online. Some items to go easy on include sour cream, extra cheese and crispy, fried tortillas.
