In my opinion Chili's Margarita Grilled Chicken classic Margarita-flavored grilled chicken with hints of lime and citrus, served with rice, black beans, tortilla strips and house-made pico de gallo was really good, but I don't know how healthy it was.

Norma,

I believe the meal that you had, including sides, is reported nutritionally, under Lighter Choices, at page 2 at http://www.chilis.com/EN/LocationSpecificPDF/MenuPDF/001.005.0000/Chilis%20Nutrition%20Menu%20Generic.pdf?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1. If that is correct, I would say that the main offender is the sodium content. It is 2790mg. The daily limit recommended for a person over 51 is 1500mg. Othewise, the number for sodium is around 2300mg. That is about a teaspoon a day of salt. For general recommendations on the major nutrients, see http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/how-to-eat-healthy/MY02264/NSECTIONGROUP=2.

Peter,

That is the meal I ate.  I only ate half of it yesterday and the rest for lunch today so I would think my sodium intake would be okay for my age for each day.

Mary Ann, what shape of pasta is that?  I apologize if it is very common and well-known; I don't know too many varieties.

Andy,

Lol I can make other foods but usually don't make a lot that is fancy.  I did cook for two husbands, 3 of my own children and a great granddaughter I raised.  They said my cooking was good but I don't cook a lot anymore.

I guess, if 5' 11" and 160 lbs is skinny. Course, that is what I have weighed for about 35 years, including my omnivore days.

Norma,

You are right about chilis fajita marinade. Out of this world good.  Too bad the copycat recipes online don't come close enough...for their salsa either :)

I'm just teasing of course. Your pictures always show fairly small portions, at least for me. Beautiful as always though.
