  • I used groud turkey instead ( I'm only allowed red meat two times a month. I honestly can not taste the difference. I used redduced sodium chips and homemade chili powder to reduce the sodium, and cut back on the olives (same reason). I had to make do to my and my husband diet restrictions. - 10/1/07
