Low Sodium Mexican Tacos
Mexican dinner night doesnt have to take a long time at all. As well, simple ingredients can create a fabulous meal in a short amount of time and they can go a long way in making your dish taste just as tasty! My version of Mexican dinner night in this recipe, uses simple, clean and healthy ingredients. I didnt use any high sodium flavouring kits and instead, i used fresh spices like fresh cilantro, jalapeños and lime to add flavour. I used one pot to cook all my veggies and then baked the chicken breasts in the oven. This is such an excellent meal that the whole
family will enjoy!
