You can adjust the amount of paprika to your spiciness level. Easy to change by swapping the ground beef out for shredded chicken or shredded slow cooker beef roast.  I’ve used my blackened chicken recipe shredded up, that really takes it up a notch. You may need to omit the additional paprika. I didn’t, but I like the heat.

Great for a quick dinner, these southwest beef tortilla wraps can be made in less than 30 minutes, and they are infinitely adaptable.  Place in tortilla, tacos, over rice or noodles. Compliment with you choice of sour cream, salsa, guacamole or cheese.  Low sodium of course! But since it leaves a bit of wiggle room, indulge in a nice cheese topping.  If you can find low sodium tortillas great! If not available, as it is pretty much here locally, try my easy homemade low-no sodium tortilla recipe. Which is what I used with this particular dish.

You can also crisp up the tortilla after filling by giving the wrap a quick shot of cooking spray all over and putting in hot skillet or under the broiler for a few minutes turning half way through or when browned.

Be sure to check out this southwestern beef tortilla wrap and don’t hold back on its versatility.  Lettuce wraps maybe? Or maybe some homemade low sodium enchilada sauce? What are you waiting for?

    I have recently begun a low/no sodium diet. I am so thankful to have come across your website! This recipe turned out so good! I wanted my veggies cooked a little more than 5 minutes but not a problem. Your ideas of spices to put into the different recipes help so much to cover the taste of no salt!! I keep coming back to your site to fix more meals. Do you have recommendations for a marinade for grilling? And also spice combinations for single vegetables such as broccoli or cauliflower.
