Helpful hints

  • Look for canned or bottled hot taco sauce.
  • Compare labels and choose the brands of salsa, green chilies, olives and taco sauce lowest in sodium.
  • Look for queso anejo, a Mexican cheese that easily crumbles. If unavailable, buy the shredded cheese labeled "Mexican." Cheese and olives are optional.
  • Make a wrap with flat bread or flour tortilla and Taco Pasta Salad with lettuce inside.

Taco Pasta Salad

I haven't tried this yet but will. Is it possible to make this into a summer meal by adding some cooked chunks of chicken and still be kidney-diet friendly? Dietitian comment: Yes, it will still be suitable for your kidney diet. Each ounce of cooked chicken will add approximately 7 grams protein, 100 mg potassium, 30 mg sodium and 65 mg phosphorus.
