Searching for a locally owned restaurant in Hendersonville is a pretty easy task with 61 to choose from. Narrowing down where to go from week to week… that is the hard part. This weeks Healthier Hendersonville feature is a true hidden gem in Hendersonville.

If you guessed Rancho Cantina you are CORRECT! Rancho Cantina is dedicated to bringing authentic Mexican cuisine to Hendersonville.

There are numerous ways to eat healthy at Mexican restaurants, which is why you will always find me accepting offers for Taco Tuesday! The most popular is probably a taco salad without the shell. Whether you are paleo, keto, clean eating, whole 30, or whatever the next thing might be this meal works!
However, I did opt for the $5.99 chicken fajitas because you just can’t beat that deal. One thing about Rancho Cantina that you cannot skip is their salsa. I might go out on a limb and say it is the best in town. In order to be able to eat a few chips I held off on the beans and tortillas that come with the meal. My meal included a large plate of chicken, peppers, onions, rice, and a salad. The meal filled me up and left my wallet happy at checkout!
The macros for the meal are as follows:
Carbs: 25 grams
