Robyn4254 I have found if you can find FAJITA size flour tortillas, they are slightly smaller, and Sodium ranges from 134 to about 180, depending on the brand. I even recently found them at my local Wal-Mart...they were 180. Also, Low Carb from Mission at Target stores with a grocery, about 8 in a package, are lower sodium as well. because MAKING them is an ALL DAY THING...and who has time for that ???! Another alternative, that I LOVE...put this in a Lettuce leaf...any kind...really refreshes the whole experience.

I need help with this recipe we looked for tortilla and they all had more sodium in them than whole recipe is ther a special brand to use ? Dietitian comment: Unfortunately most commercially prepared flour tortillas now contain baking powder, and some have salt in addition. This really drives up the sodium content. This was not the case when the recipe was created years ago. Try making your own flour tortillas using the DaVita.com Flour Tortillas recipe with only 60 mg sodium each. http://www.davita.com/recipes/breads/flour-tortillas/r/5714.

What would be a good kidney friendly side dish for this? Dietitian comment: Try the Mexican Rice recipe in the Pasta, Rice & Grains category.

Can you tell me where I can find how much of each food choice you can eat each day. This recipe says 3 meat 2 starch and 1 vegetable so how much do you eat in one day total? Dietitian comment: These amounts come from your meal plan. Ask your dietitian for a meal plan based on your protein and calorie requirements.

Very good! It was quite spicy - might be too much for children, but the adults in our family enjoyed. Will be using this recipe again.

Why can't this be for CKD non -dialysis? Moderator comment: You are correct--it can be for CKD non-dialysis. Simply adjust the chicken portion if you need a lower protein meal. I have changed the recipe to reflect this.

Made this tonight for dinner and it is actually very good! Next time however I think I will cut down the chili seasoning..it was a bit spicy but very tasty and one I will use again.
