I found that it is possible to eat Tex-Mex without going over your calories. It isn't easy though.
First off, don't eat the complimentary tortilla chips. If you want some salsa ask for corn tortillas and have some salsa with these instead of chips. Don't eat too many corn tortillas! Even before they are fried they have enough calories to really add up.
Order wisely. My standby is Spinach enchioadas verde with no cheese. They are tasty without being too calorific. Some restaurants have enchiladas with steamed vegetables which are also good.
If you are really careful with your entre you might even have calories left over for flan or a sopaipilla or two.
