Add Some Spice With Mrs. Dash!

As someone who suffers from high blood pressure, I have to be careful with my salt intake...not always easy to do being the salt-addict that I am. One thing that has helped me tremendously is the line of Mrs. Dash seasonings. The salt-free, and MSG-free, spices add that touch of taste to my food without sacrificing my health.

Thanks to Mom Central, I was able to try the new Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime seasoning blend, and I am so glad that I did. I think Fiesta Lime just might beat out my all-time favorite Italian seasoning by Mrs. Dash (really good on popcorn).

Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime combines all-natural spices like sweet chili pepper, allspice, cayenne pepper, cumin, cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg and ginger but then adds some orange zest and lime juice to create an all-in one Mexican seasoning. There's also paprika, which, to me, stands out the most next to the lime.

I found a quick, easy and tasty way to use Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime. While making chicken fajitas one night, I had the seasoning on my kitchen island near the sour cream I planned to serve with the meal. I put the sour cream in a bowl and added the Fiesta Lime to it.

My husband was skeptical when I asked him to try it, but he declared that it was "very good," as did my kids. I'll never have my fajitas without it again!

I didn't measure how much of the Fiesta Lime I added, so use your best judgement. You can definitely taste the lime and the more you use, the more tangy the taste.

You could also serve the mixture as a dip with tortilla chips at a party, or use it as a spread on a pita sandwich, maybe with tuna? (I'm definitely going to try that myself soon!)

My husband has high blood pressure. I use minimal salt in my cooking, unless a recipe asks for it. I usually only salt fries, potatoes, etc. We use Mrs Dash to season our meals.
