We are addicted to these. Seriously, we eat tacos at least once a week. There was a brief time when all our stores were out of the Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime seasoning (which is a staple in our household) and I went onto hearthealthymarket and ordered, gosh, 14? Just in case. Yea, it was a slight overreaction to a quickly resolved problem in our area; but the bright side is that I don’t have fear of running out any time soon.
We eat both ground beef and chicken tacos. When we were first on the low sodium diet, this is one thing that we figured out relatively quickly with beef. So, needless to say, we got a little burnt out on it over the last several years. Now, we have turned our attention onto chicken tacos, and boy these are yummy.
Another grilling option, so likely we will resort back to the beef ones once the cold weather snaps in, but in the meantime these are the tacos of choice. You can serve them with the Great Guac! or some low sodium salsa (or both)! Currently, we have been able to find pretty decent low sodium salsa in our area so we haven’t ventured into making that… at least not yet.
Also, another random note is that I’m sure you can do this stove-top. We have just never tried.
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (300mg)
- 3 tbsp. Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime seasoning
- 1/4 cup water
- 12 crispy low sodium tacos (I use Taco Bell ones) - 20mg
- 3 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
- 6 tbsp. Low Sodium Salsa or Hot Sauce (optional)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
- 1 batch of my Great Guac! recipe (optional)
- Fire up that grill to a nice medium heat and grill the chicken breasts for about 15 minutes (or until cooked throughout). Bring inside and shred the chicken and add it to a fry pan with Mrs. Dash Seasoning and water; bringing it to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
- Spoon chicken into the shells, topping it with lettuce, salsa and guacamole. For a little added sodium, sprinkle some Mexican Blend Cheese onto them and enjoy! Oh, and obviously, PALEO would forgo the shell and make this into a taco salad 🙂
- You can optionally marinade these in the Lime Basil Marinade (from an older post) prior to grilling.
