Reduced Sodium Seasoning Mixes from Ortega

Updated on July 12, 2012

Are you a fan of tasty Mexican food? Do you wish there was a way to enjoy delicious Mexican dishes while cutting back on the amount of sodium in your diet? Thanks to the reduced sodium line of seasoning mixes that Ortega has introduced, you can do just that!

Ortega Reduced Sodium Seasoning Packets

Ortega has long been recognized as a leader provider of Mexican seasoning blends. In February of 2012, the company introduced three reduced sodium options, designed to meet the needs of consumers who want to enjoy the convenience of seasoning blend packets and the great taste of Ortega while also cutting down on sodium consumption.

Ortega sent me a package of each of the low-sodium seasoning mixes to try, and I can honestly say that they are just as flavorful as the original varieties. Your family members - even those who just love salt - probably won’t even realize that you are using a low sodium product.


Available Reduced Sodium Options

  • Chili Mix - Ortega reduced sodium chili seasoning mix has 33 percent less sodium than the regular variety. Make your favorite chili dish using this and fresh tomatoes or reduced-sodium canned tomatoes for a great lower sodium meal option.
  • Fajita Mix - Ortega reduced sodium fajita seasoning mix has 25 percent less sodium than the regular variety, with all of the same great taste.
  • Burrito Seasoning Mix - Ortega burrito seasoning mix has 25 percent less sodium than regular seasoning mix and, like the other varieties, tastes just as great as the higher sodium option.

Enjoy Tasty Mexican Meals with Less Sodium

Cutting back on sodium in your cooking doesn’t have to be difficult and you don’t have to give up flavor to do so. While these seasoning mixes aren’t sodium-free, they can help you cut quite a bit of sodium out of your favorite Mexican dishes if you ordinarily prepare them will full sodium flavor packets.
