Have a Fit Fiesta With 4 Easy Swaps

Instead of: A chimichanga
Enjoy: Chicken fajitas


Chimichanga is a classic dish that’s comprised of a fried, stuffed burrito often accompanied by a small mound of refried beans and rice on the side. At most Mexican restaurants, the entrée weighs in at about 2,000 calories. A slimmer selection: Chicken fajitas with beans, salsa, guacamole and two corn tortillas for just 550 calories. Need a little sour cream? Go ahead and use a small dollop (factor in roughly 23 calories per level tablespoon).
