Why Low Sodium Taco Seasoning?

Many taco seasoning packets that you find in the grocery store are loaded with sodium. Some have as much as 380 mg of sodium in a 2 teaspoon serving. In fact, tacos are one of the top 10 sources of sodium in a typical American diet. 

A food item is considered low sodium if it has 140 mg of sodium or less per serving.

Some taco seasoning packets also have added potassium, which some people with chronic kidney disease need to limit.

How to Make

This recipe is oh so easy to make. Just add all the dry seasonings in a bowl and whisk to combine. You can triple this recipe to make extra. It also makes a great simple DIY gift. Mix all ingredients together in a small mason jar and add a cute bow.
