I absolutely love Mexican food, I could eat chips and salsa, queso, rice and fajitas everyday. But I am sure you are aware those foods aren't really friendly to slimming your waist. So I have some great news, you can still have some of your favorite Mexican delights without battling the bugle.
I went to Salsarita's Fresh Cantina last night in Greenville and was shocked with all the many choices they had. The great thing about it is, all of the food is right in front of you so you just pick what you would like. So this is what I went with......
1. started with type of meal you want
2. pick your protein
3. choose your toppings and fillings
Cholula® Corn Salsa
And then TA DA
When I got home I got online to check out their website because I always like to see if it shares the nutritional value and boy it sure did.
