Savor the flavors of Mexico with these slimmed-down versions of traditional favorite recipes.

Cinco de Mayo (a bigger holiday in the United States than it is in Mexico) is the perfect excuse for a pre-summer bash. But the typical Cinco de Mayo menu, replete with fried tortillas, fatty sauces, and cheese-heavy dishes, is the healthy eater's worst nightmare-and the timing is especially tragic, falling as it does so close to swimsuit season. This year, lighten up your Cinco de Mayo celebration, with a spa-inspired menu that swaps vegetables for rice and chips, ups the fiber, and slashes fat and calories. That's really something to celebrate!
