You ask me to pick a restaurant and nine times out of ten, I will choose Mexican. Especially if it’s summer. There’s nothing better than summer patios, good conversation, and of course stuffing your face with chips & guac…all while sipping on a margarita.
So if I ate like I really wanted too, I’d probably gain 100 pounds this summer. When I start craving Mexican I now make these AMAZING Shrimp Tacos I found in the Woman’s Day Magazine my grandmother always gives me after she’s finished reading. I’m telling you these are the BEST. The combination of shrimp, mango, and black beans is light, summery, refreshing delishious-ness. You make these for your guests, and they will think they came from a restaurant. Bonus? They are HEALTHY and only 316 calories per serving!
Now this meal just (just in case meaning) wouldn’t be complete without a margarita. I’m not the type that will have “just one” with my meal…so they need to be “skinny”. I don’t have a fancy recipe, I keep it simple. I buy the Skinny Girl Margarita Mix and add a few things. To be honest, I don’t think it tastes great on it’s own, but if you sweeten it up a bit it’s perfect. Only 144 calories per drink…much better than the typical 700 plus in a regular margarita.
Modified Skinny Girl Margarita
6 oz Skinny Girl Margarita Mix
