  1. Shop around for worcestershire sauce, chili powder and hamburger buns in this recipe. Some stores carry a lower sodium version of Worcestershire sauce. Chili powder can vary by brand; Aldi sells a very low sodium version. Hamburger buns can really affect the sodium in this recipe if you have a bread maker make your own.
