When dining out for Mexican food, it's almost inevitable that you'll overstuff yourself with tortilla chips dipped in salsa and guacamole before even cracking into the main course. The common starter seems to always find its way to the table somehow, so after indulging in the delicious treat, it's important to be conscious of what you're ordering next to avoid consuming too many calories, sodium, and fats. And that means you'll want to avoid ordering one specific dish as your meal.

We checked in with Morgan Brod, RDN, CDN to educate us on the worst possible dish that you should never order at a Mexican restaurant. While she recommends always watching portion size and balancing healthy foods throughout the day to avoid high a calorie intake, the expert says there is one popular meal you should really stay away from at a Mexican restaurant. (Spoiler alert: It's probably one of your favorites. Sorry!)
