Taco Bell Enchirito, Steak
Calories & Nutrition

Written by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites

Not a Bad Selection for Dieters

The steak version of the Enchirito is very close in values to the chicken selection.

What we like about this entree is that it's a hand-held food and makes a well-rounded meal when a side of beans is added.

In addition, because the lipid values remain low this signals that fatty meat isn't the star, rather a leaner cut of the beef.

If you enjoy this menu selection be sure to add a lot of color in the area of fresh vegetables to your next meal, particularly leafy greens.

Homemade Recipe

When you prepare your favorite foods from home - whether it's a burrito or an enchilada you will be exercising more control over the nutritional values of the foods that you want to fuel your body with.

Looking for the Skinny Cut

To prepare a homemade version of the Enchirito start with the leanest cut of beef available and season with the typical Mexican and Spanish style seasonings - chili powder, garlic, onion, chives, cumin and cilantro, or you can opt to use your favorite seasoning packet if you wish.

Keeping Shell Values Minimal

Look for tortilla shells that are the most minimal in caloric values - and also add a healthy mix of vegetables to your meal.

When it's all said and done, the key to achieving a recipe that can easily be a part of your weight loss plan is to examine each and every ingredient that is going into the process.

Always keep thinking outside of the box - determining which ingredients can be exchanged for lighter and leaner ones.
