I hadn't realized that before, but it has such a small amount and I don't use that much of it for the whole batch, that I'm fine with it. Wouldn't be the same w/o that taste :)

Though do know that Chili Powder has added salt to it! The red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper would be better to add for the heat.

We love tacos, so I just read the ingredients on the back of a packet I had, and threw that stuff in on my own. Delicious!

Pepper
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Cumin
Chili powder

You could also add some crushed red pepper flakes or cayenne if you want.

There are actually about five or six different no sodium taco seasoning mixes, as well as several other no sodium seasonings on Spark Recipes. Just use keywords "No Salt or No Sodium" in your search.

I try to make sure that the serving size sodium level is below 200 mg. Speaking of taco seasoning mix, has anyone got a suggestion for that?

Thanks!

They try to fool you on the serving size. That's why I am a big advocate of reading the labels. A lot of companies will try and claim lower in sodium, but it is merely smaller serving size that creates the lower in sodium.

Ortega 40% less sodium Taco Seasoning. It has 6 servings per pkg. I was so distraught b/c I dumped in the whole pkg. than I looked on the back & I was very disappoited 260mg. of sodium per servings. That's 1560 per pkg. I would not have bought this had I realized. I was so mad I should've just went w/ the Aldi brand. I'll be reading pkg. more clearly from now on.

Every time I rely on Jesus He never lets me down.
