Welcome to Mesilla Restaurant!
Mesilla Restaurant prides itself in a healthy Mexican dining experience. We prepare our dishes with nothing but the freshest ingredients, sourcing locally and organically as much as possible. We believe in creating community by supporting local farmers, bringing people together, and enjoying a healthy lifestyle.
Some find it hard to imagine how Mexican cuisine could be served in a healthy way. Avoiding too much sour cream, heavy cheese, fried tortillas and meats, while substituting with more vegetables, healthy guacamole and even gluten-free tortillas are just a few techniques we’ve played with in our dishes.
One of our most popular items on our menu is our Veggie Veggie Burrito. Thisopen-faced burrito features sautéed green beans and broccoli in a spicy homemade chipotle sauce, combined with guacamole and black beans, all atop 2 warm, baked, gluten-free corn tortillas. Mexican dishes are some of the most popular foods. Enjoy a variety of pungent flavors, guilt-free!
What about the chips? It’s hard to imagine sitting down at a Mexican restaurant and NOT munching on chips and salsa while you wait for your meal. Our alternative is to offer soft, calorie-light corn tortillas in place of chips. You can spread them with salsa, roll them up and enjoy your taquitas!
What’s with the beans? At Mesilla Restaurant, we love our pinto and black beans. They are protein and fiber-rich and low in fat. We find this a healthy and delicious alternative to the usual refried beans, which are often prepared with lard and unhealthy cheese blends.
Where’s the cheese? Queso dips and nacho cheese are delicious, but they are also extremely high in fat and calories, as is sour cream. We like to substitute with our fresh, homemade guacamole, which contains healthy fat, and is served in healthy portions. We also offer a range of our popular homemade salsas, playing with different fruity flavors and levels of spice. Salsa is low-calorie and fat-free, so be wild and try them all!
Even if you’re not a vegetarian or vegan, avoiding meat every once in a while won’t kill you. In fact, it may even prolong your life! Most restaurants serve meat that is mass-farmed and pumped full of antibiotics, but even the over-consumption of organic meat will clog your arteries, raise your blood pressure and put you at greater risk of heart disease. Our warm dishes are filling, full of protein and so tasty, you won’t even notice that you’ve gone vegetarian!
We like to play with brown and wild rice on the side, which is unusual in a Mexican restaurant. But mixing it up means a few great combinations that you may have never thought of before, as well as more nutrients and less empty carbs. You can get your rice as a side, or replace it with one of our many exciting salads. We know how many salads you may have to eat in your life, and it is our goal to make ours as spectacular as possible for our customers.
We hope to open your eyes, your hearts and your mind to healthy Mexican dishes.
