Big Girls Don't Wear Belts - Cinco de Mayo Menu

What's on your Cinco de Mayo menu?

Want to hit the all-you-can-eat taco bar for Cinco De Mayo? Maybe a nice, cold margarita.... Well, that wouldn't get us to belt wearing shape, would it?

Did you know that just chips and salsa BEFORE your meal can pack in over 1000 calories??? And that's before you guzzled a margarita and devoured your fried a la covered in cheese dish!

Here's what's on the Magee's menu for the night: Shredded Chicken with Corn and Black Bean Salsa.

I served this on top of a bed of shredded cabbage and then with my homemade refried beans and some avacado. I hope you think it is equally delish! For the sake of brevity - please see my blog Big Girls Don't Wear Belts for full recipes!

Would it hurt to maybe just lick one chip, that has been dipped in salsa then shaken so none is left on it lol. Some things are a little harder to give up on a "holiday" if you like to go out with friends...

If you are going to go out with your friends today then ask for no chips. :) Have fajitas because they're grilled and skip the sour cream, tortillas, etc. And limit yourself to one margarita. You'll still get to have a great time and not feel guilty later!
