4 Reasons You Should Eat More Tex Mex Food in 2015

Posted in Food and Fun

Most people make New Year’s resolutions that have them giving something up. They resolve to quit smoking. They promise themselves they won’t eat so much (they will diet). They say they intend to sit around less and instead exercise more.

Here at Mattito’s, we think you should do morein 2015. As in, we feel you should eat more Tex Mex cuisine in the coming year.

Here are four reasons why:

  1. It’s delicious. Tex Mex food is full of meats, fish, beans, vegetables, cheese, sauces, and spices. In fact, it’s those spices – from the very mild to the muy caliente – that bring out the flavor in the vegetables and the meats, making Tex Mex dishes a feast for your taste buds.

Resolve to eat more Tex Mex food in 2015.

  1. It’s very colorful. It may be a cliché, but with the generous use of tomatoes; red, yellow and green peppers; cheese; green guacamole; and more, Tex Mex dishes are a “party on a plate.” Plus, your meal is full of good vitamins and minerals, courtesy of those colorful vegetables.
  2. It’s very satisfying. A great Tex Mex meal is one with meat (beef, fowl or fish), vegetables and beans. It therefore has plenty of protein for satiety and veggies and beans for health. You can eat a hearty Tex Mex lunch and not even need to worry about being hungry for the rest of the day (and it won’t be because you’re stuffed, but because you’re satisfied).
  3. It’s healthy. Yes, you can smother your meal in cheese and cheese sauces. But no one’s forcing you to do so. In fact, if you come to Mattito’s to eat, you can ask for less-fat dishes and we’re happy to comply. But with all the vegetables, beans and lean meats you can eat in a Tex Mex meal, you can rest assured that you’re providing your body with lots of healthy vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Our Mattito’s locations will close at 9 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and will be closed all of New Year’s Day. But if you’d like to get 2015 off to a great start, come eat with us on January 2 – or just about any day of 2015.

There’s a Mattito’s near you and eat more Tex Mex dishes throughout the year!
