Mexican food has become one of the most eaten cuisines in the US and has become a constant staple in the average Americans’ diet.

Nachos smothered with melted cheese and a hearty dose of sour cream can certainly give an individual a fatty sensation. Furthermore, when the average Mexican entrees include beef, chicken, cheese, fried tortillas in huge bulks; how can you eat healthy?
