My favorite dish for my evening meal (“supper” here) is a creamy soup, a light green salad and chips and a dip. I was tired of low sodium crackers and trying to cut back the sodium even more - and trim the grocery costs too. Got a great idea one night when I was watching a cooking show on TV. The recipe called for corn tortillas (they are no sodium) cut unto quarters (I do eighths). Then I put them all in a big bowl, sprinkled them with olive oil and then dusted them with Mrs.Dash’s no sodium onion soup mix. I spread them in a single layer on a baking pan and into the oven. They toasted (at 350) for about 20 min in my oven and were crisp and delicious. I have used different no sodium spices and enjoy them all. When I’m careful with the sodium in the dip (I love avocado cream) I’m home free. . .sodium-wise anyway!

    You are asking for it my friends - encouragement just makes me "talk" more! Some friends have suggested I write in a journal rather than in e-mails! I'll try to restrain myself - ok? emoticon

    I've tried that too Meri and indeed they are good and cheap !!!

    The use of various spices really can make a difference as well. Even a little sprinkle of reduced fat parm cheese (aka 'sprinkle cheese') can be tasty.

    Keep giving us good ideas emoticon emoticon
