Low calorie Mexican favorites in Ixtapan Spa’s Teocali Restaurant

low calorie MexicanToday’s New York Times Food Section features the taco. Americans associate tacos with heavily salted fried chips and with Taco Bell. At Ixtapan Spa in our outdoor Teocali Restaurant, you meet a new taco. Tacos are tortillas (flat bread) made from corn or wheat and rolled around or under a filling. Tortillas that are grilled, (what we do at Ixtapan Spa) are less caloric but equally delicious. In fact a pure corn tortilla is a ‘bread’ item people with celiac disease can enjoy. Tacos at Ixtapan Spa are flour and corn based. Ask our English speaking Head Waiter if you have a special diet.

To grill tacos , choose white corn tortillas.  Brush lightly with olive oil, and toast over a bbq until as stiff as you wish. Crunchy tacos will take no longer than 45-60 seconds. Use these for your guacamole and enjoy our style of low cal Mexican gourmet cuisine.
