Helpful hints

  • If you want less heat add the mild version of canned tomatoes with chilies.
  • Be sure to count as 2 vegetable servings if you are on a low potassium diet. To reduce the potassium to 534 mg add 1-1/2 cups of cooked rice, omit the corn and reduce canned tomatoes and chilies to 1/2 cup.
  • Patients who do peritoneal dialysis or daily home hemodialysis often require a higher potassium intake. This recipe can help provide more potassium.
  • For lower protein CKD-nondialysis diets reduce the ground beef to 1/2 pound of the amount recommended by your dietitian.

I made it the original recipe and it was not tasty, too watery..I could tell it needed help and I kept trying to think of a way to save it...I think making it with rice would help it, but my husband is diabetic so we count those carbs!
