- For homemade red chili sauce see the Chile Colorado Sauce recipe on DaVita.com. If using ready-made sauce, select the lowest sodium brand.
- If you are on a low potassium diet, do not skip the boiling process for potatoes. This is necessary to reduce potassium.
- An alternative method is to pre-boiled potatoes: peel, cube and soak potatoes in a large amount of water for 2 to 4 hours. The amount of water should be at least five times that of the potatoes.
- 1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder can be substituted for fresh onion and garlic.
- If you are on a low protein diet, adjust the portion to match your meal plan or ask your dietitian for guidance.
