Made this today and it is delicious. I like the spice combination better than any package stuff I have had. It now have red pepper, so used some salt free lemon pepper. That seemed to brighten it. I also use the soft corn taco shells. Easier to get without salt.

Soft Tacos with Mexican Seasoning

Love the recipe minus the soft taco shell (tortilla). Can the soft corn tortilla be used as a substitute? I am not fond of soft flour tortillas. Dietitian comment: Yes this sub can be made and the sodium content will be lower.

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 in the Breads recipe category you will find a homemade tortilla recipe with only 60 mg sodium per tortilla.

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.
