Most flour tortillas are incredibly high sodium content. Will you please post your recipe - or brand - of flour tortillas used here to keep total sodium (including cheese, etc.) at 309? Sure would appreciate it! This taco meal sounds like a wonderful treat. Dietitian comment: You are right[INVALID]most commercially prepared tortillas contain baking powder which increases sodium and phosphorus. The brand used in analysis is Mariachi with 134 mg sodium for a 6-inch tortilla. The USDA database has a generic 6-inch flour tortilla with 153 mg sodium. On DaVita.com in the Breads recipe category you will find a homemade tortilla recipe with only 60 mg sodium per tortilla.

I make these with the Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime blend (2 Tbsp as suggested below). My whole family loves them.

I am a DaVita renal dietitian and made this recipe for my patients. Everyone, both patients and teammates LOVED IT! The Mexican Seasoning recipe is very good, OR try the new Mrs. Dash FIESTA LIME blend -- use about 2 Tablespoons.
