Fresh-made salsa tastes more vibrant than bottled, and you control the added sodium. The cheese and sour cream add salty notes to these tacos. Corn tortillas have a fraction of the sodium in flour ones, and they also contribute a pleasingly chewy texture. Round out breakfast with fresh mango slices.
