Summer is coming, and it’s time to break out the grill and make some excellent delicacies! Fiesta is lavish because you can throw together many simple ingredients and quickly feed a crowd. Here are three healthy recipes perfect for your next fiesta that’ll have your friends going back for seconds.
1. Mexican Cauliflower Rice
This recipe makes about four servings and takes about half an hour to complete. It includes cauliflower, lime juice, fresh cilantro, garlic cloves, and jalapeno.
2. Mexican-Style Oven Fries
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut the sweet potatoes into 1/4-inch strips and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Drizzle the potato strips with olive oil, then toss well to coat. Sprinkle sea salt, garlic powder, paprika, and chili powder over the fries, tossing them again to distribute these ingredients evenly.
- Bake for 15 minutes on one side, then turn them over and bake for another 10–15 minutes or until they’re crispy and browned.
- Once the fries are done cooking, let them cool for about 5 minutes before serving alongside your creamy avocado dip and fresh pico de gallo salsa!
3. Healthy Loaded Nachos
- Instead of ground beef, use shredded chicken. You’ll get the same great protein without all the beef’s fat and calories.
- Instead of regular cheese, use a low-fat or fat-free option. Make sure to read the labels—some supposedly “healthy” options can be just as bad as their full-fat counterparts!.
- Use black beans instead of refried beans, high in sodium and trans fats! Top with your favorite toppings for extra flavor.
- Use baked tortilla chips instead of regular ones.
These three recipes are delicious, but they’re also healthy and easy to make on a budget! It would be best for you to try them.
