  • Haven't tried this recipe, to lower the sodium levels, use lower sodium tomatoes, chicken broth and even the ham. Can use dried red beans, soak and pre cook. Takes some searching in the grocery store, but these ingredients can be found. Also, look for cajun seasoning that has lower or no sodium. - 10/9/08
