Great ideas! The last time I had Mexican, I was not able to check the nutrition in advance. I ended up eating OK, but I am sure I overdid it. I find I have to have a plan when I go out to eat so it doesn't end up in a free for all!
Very simple solution! There's site I use regularly which lists nearly everything you care to track. Even restaurants. I looked for fajitas there, and since I love Chili's, I checked their data. Here's the page for that search... calorielab.com/restaurants/chilis/12 The fajitas are down the page a ways... but it specifically lists the nutrition data WITHOUT the tortilla.
If you go back to the main listing page, they even have a section at the bottom of their listings for restaurants which refused to provide their info! shame on 'em!

If they don't have nutrition info online, then you could also take a picture of your meal so you can see it when you get home and determine the portion size then rather than try to remember.

In my opinion, chicken fajita without the tortilla is an excellent choice. You can pick how much cheese, rice, beans, sour cream to eat with the yummy meat and veggies.

Personally, I would estimate and track each item seperately. For example, if I thought the chicken added up to 4 oz, I'd track that, plus 1/2 cup (or however many you think) veggies, plus 2 tbs sour cream, etc. I'd also track an extra 1/2 - 1 Tbs of oil to the meal to account for any they may have used while cooking.

We are planning to eat out with friends tonight. My plan is to order one chicken fajita with no tortilla. That's just chicken and veggies, right? But I have no clue how to tract it. Any suggestions?
(I plan to pass on the chips and salsa and any guac/sour cream I may eat will be tracked separately.)
