Mexican recipes for the Healthy Foodie

Mexican pizza -- healthy version
While it can be hard to "eat healthy" at most Mexican restaurants, the main ingredients in Mexican cuisine actually are full of excellent nutrients. It's just that at restaurants we tend to load up on fried tortilla chips, sometimes in the over-the-top form of nachos, followed by fried entrees and/or dishes with too much high-fat cheese and sour cream. But it doesn't have to be that way!
Corn, avocado, fresh salsa made with tomatoes, garlic and onion, crispy cabbage-based slaws -- those are foods that should be in every healthy foodie's diet.
If you're interested in making nutritious AND delicious Mexican food at home, check out this set of recipes from Food & Wine. Try fish tacos, corn-tortilla soup, smoky beef fajitas, salmon in tomato-olive sauce, Mexican pizza and more. They're each easy to make, kid-friendly and hard to beat when the weather persistently stays hot through September!
