6 Traditional Latin dishes made healthier with less fat & less calories! (RECIPES)

Posteado por Irina Gonzalez

By special request from our Latin Recipes page on Facebook, we've decided to provide you with some great and, most importantly, healthy alternatives to your favorite Latin dishes

I know that hearing the words "healthy", "low-fat" and "low-cal" alongside "Latin food" is pretty much the craziest thing you may have heard all day, but trust me when I say these recipes are winners. It's not always easy to do but these 6 traditional Latin dishes are definitely made healthier--and you absolutely HAVE to try them! If you haven't yet tried the slow cooker low-calorie pernil, you can start there and then quickly move on to these other recipes that are sure to be your family's next favorites. Yum!

Which recipe would you try?

I sometimes make enchiladas in the oven instead of frying the tortilla then adding the sauce.

I only use boneless skinless breast for chicken dishes

I use lean ground beef and trim the fat off of roasts.

me too.. when I was in my country I had a few pupusas are so good but I was afraid all the fat would go to my hips LOL
