I have a gal at the group home i give cares at who just moved here and goes to dialysis three times a week and on her list of dos and donts, it says cumin and onion powder as a dont. Are those fine in moderation? Dietitian comment: Yes both are acceptable for a kidney diet.

Love this seasoning. Mix in with shredded cooked chicken and a little butter to heat it up and top with some cheese. Serve on a slice of french bread or homemade tortilla.

Hi :) Is this recipe for Shrimp Tacos and the Mexican seasoning acceptable for someone who has end stage 6 kidney failure and who's on kidney dialysis? Thanks~ dietitian comment: Dialysis is stage 5 kidney disease. Yes it is acceptable for a dialysis diet. Enjoy!

I browned a pound of lean ground turkey for tacos and used two teaspoons of seasoning - My husband and I were both surprised how good it was! As previously stated, we didn't miss the high sodium of prepackaged seasoning. Will try it on chicken soon.

Used to make soft tacos. I didn't have cayenne or paprika on hand so substituted by crushing some red pepper from pizza days and the taste was amazing. Spicy and even with the scant 1/4 cup meat it was suitably zesty and satisfying, hunger-wise.

Tried mixing this recipe with 8oz cream cheese for a creamy mexican dip. We heated it a little in the microwave to soften it, then served it with unsalted pretzels and low sodium tortilla chips. It was liked very well by everyone who tried it. Nutrients per 1oz serving (using regular cream cheese): 105 Calories, 38mg Calcium, 39mg Phosphorus, 85 mg Potassium and 101mg Sodium.

This is excellent and nobody missed the 300 - 400 mg. sodium (or more) from packaged seasoning!
