Creamy Green Enchiladas
Very Good 4.2/5
(61 ratings)

I love enchiladas! These are full of vegetables in addition to the cheese and creamy sauce. Each one has a full serving of veggies, plus almost 20% of your daily fiber.

Vegetable-Packed Guacamole
Very Good 4.5/5
(64 ratings)

My favorite Mexican restaurant serves a guacamole that's heavy on vegetables--and flavor. To slim it down even more, serve with carrots, celery and cucumber slices.

Quesadilla Explosion Salad: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Finalist
Very Good 4.2/5
(46 ratings)

Oh, Quesadilla Explosion Salad! How I love you!
I have eaten plenty of these at Chili's and was "Oh so surprised!" to see it listed as #2 on the 10 worst restaurant salads! Number T-O-O! Too much fat, Too many calories, Too many points!

It's a salad! How can it be so bad for you?

Something had to be done! This is my response. I have also created recipes for the various ingredients used in this salad. They are named as they appear in the list of ingredients. Feel free to use them or your own. Beware the nutrition data of this salad will change if you use another version.

Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips
Very Good 4.5/5
(50 ratings)

My dip has all the flavor of the original, but it's much easier on the waistline. I prefer to eat this "dip" with a fork or raw vegetables.
