Tacos

This time we wanted to show you how to make a low sodium version of tacos! Compared to regular tacos, our method is pretty much the same. What we do differently is selection of low sodium ingredients. In this recipe taco bread, sour cream and hot sauce are the ingredients you should get low sodium versions of. The other ingredients are already low sodium in their fresh, natural forms.

Here are some suggestions regarding which products you can find at grocers for tacos, hot sauces and sour creams. By clicking on their names, you can read more on each product:

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. of lean ground beef
  • 2 mid-size tomatoes
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 mid-size lettuce
  • 4 teaspoons of hot sauce
  • 4 tablespoons of sour cream
  • 8 tacos (soft or hard)
  • 2 limes (or lemon)

Directions:

  1. Fry the ground beef in a saucepan. In a non-stick pan, the beef can be fried in its own fat. If it is getting sticky, then you can add a tablespoon or two of oil of your preference.
  2. Smash avocados with a fork in a cup. Mince the tomatoes and cut the lettuce into thin slices.
  3. Spread the fried ground beef in a taco first, then the sliced tomatoes and lettuce on top. Squeeze little bit of lime over the lettuce. Then spread some sour cream, mashed avocados and low sodium hot sauce on the taco. Wrap the taco close, if you are using soft taco bread.
  4. Tacos are fun meals; therefore you can change the amount of ingredients you use, especially lime, hot sauce and sour cream, as you wish. As long as you watch for your dietary requirements!
  5. Enjoy!
