Expert Tips

Don’t have the tomatoes with green chiles? Use 4 (15.5-oz) cans tomatoes and 2 (4.5-oz) cans Old El Paso® chopped green chiles instead.

To reduce sodium in each serving by about 380 milligrams, use reduced-sodium taco seasoning and tomato sauce. You can also omit the corn chips and lower the sodium an additional 70 milligrams.
