I try to keep my base recipes as simple as possible. This way, you can always add or pair your meal with sides and other goodies! Fajitas are an easy go to. Its quick and delicious. Low Sodium Fajitas

Ingredients: Low Sodium Fajitas

base ingredients:

    • 1 lb of chicken, steak or shrimp. (Sodium varies per meat. All 2 are usually loso. Be sure to check packages. We will use 300mg as an average, but will most likely be much lower).
    • 1 package of Mrs Dash Salt-Free Fajita Seasoning (0mg)
    • Olive Oil (0mg)
    • Clove of Garlic (0mg)
    • 1 large onion (0mg)
    • 3 Bell peppers of assorted colors (0mg)
    • Juice of 1 lime (0mg)
    • 1/4 teaspoon fresh-cracked pepper (0mg)
    • Corn Tortillas (15mg per 3 tortillas)
    • Shredded cheese (such as Kroger Mexican Style Blend) (170mg for 1/4 cup) – I usually use about this much for 3 tacos.
    • Sour Cream (15mg for 2 tbsp)
    • lettuce, tomato, onion, cilantro, or any other fresh veggie you would like for topping! (0mg)


First you are going to start by chopping your Protein, Large onion, and bell peppers. Combine in a large bowl, cookie sheet or gallon zip lock bag. Next squeeze in the juice of the lime. I also like to zest the lime a bit just for some added flavor! Go ahead and add in your packet of Mrs Dash seasoning. If you don’t have Mrs Dash on hand, you can make a decent flavor packet by combining, Paprika, Chili powder, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, black pepper, cumin, and dried oregano together. Finally, add in your olive oil. There is no set amount here. Just add in enough to use as a marinade when mixed with the seasonings and lime.  Let this set in the fridge for as long as you can. Overnight produces excellent flavor and tender meat!


When you are ready to cook, heat olive oil in a large skillet. I prefer to cook on a Blackstone grill or in a large cast iron skillet. It seems to caramelize the meat and veggies a bit more than a normal non stick skillet. However, we are all about the food, not so much the method! So use what you have on hand! Once the oil is hot, go ahead and add in your marinated meat and veggies. allow to cook until meat is done and veggies are caramelized. Usually about 20 minutes on my Blackstone. I like to remove the meat and veggies and use the seasoned pan to heat my corn tortillas. This step is up to you. Some prefer the tortillas warmed in the microwave. Either way, warm your tortillas, Fill with your meat and veggie mixture, and then add your toppings. I usually have 3 tacos (sometimes 4). They are small enough that your meat content is still within the 4 oz. You should be able to enjoy this meal for under 500mg of sodium no problems! Just remember, if you add in other ingredients that contain sodium, you have to sub out your cheese, or small portion of meat! Enjoy! Hit me up if you have great recipes to share!
