Mexican HEALTH-ified

Do you love Mexican food? I do IF:  it comes from Cafe Rio, is homemade, has lots of flavor, is not full of too-much cheese/sour cream, or is a bit spicy.

My husband LOVES Mexican so naturally we eat it often (more often than I ever did before we were married anyway). So I am always on a quest to make it tasty AND healthy!

In the MIX, you ask? Here it is:
*Black Beans
*Fat Free Refried Beans
*Canned Chicken
*peppers and onions
*Taco and Cumin seasoning
(cook the above over a stove for about 10 mins)
after, add:
*Light Sour Cream
*dash of Cheddar Cheese (my husband had a bowlfull on his...he adores cheese. Me, not so much)
*Whole wheat tortilla
Roll it all up and CHOW down, friends!
YUMM. I adore SALSA!

Go ahead and try it, you will LOVE it. Find yourself craving it, probably. Happy Cookin friends! What are SOME ways you make Mexican a bit more health-ified?
