A kitchen staple, this Low FODMAP Taco Seasoning is gluten-free, garlic free and onion free, but full of flavor!!
Add Mexican-inspired flavor to many dishes (tacos, migas, carnitas, etc.) with this Low FODMAP Taco Seasoning. Many store-bought varieties contain FODMAPs in the form of garlic and/or onion powder, so this is an easy way to get a similar flavor without triggering symptoms!
Tips for Use:
Although it’s really a personal preference, I like to add about 1 ½ tablespoons of taco seasoning and 1-2 tablespoons of water per pound of ground meat. I tend to add closer to two tablespoons of water when making leaner ground beef or ground turkey tacos.
This recipe makes enough taco seasoning for several rounds of taco, but since “Taco Night” is a near-weekly occurrence in our house, I will often double or triple this recipe to make a large batch to have on hand.
IBS and Peppers:
Peppers, both sweet and hot chili, are considered low FODMAP. However, peppers contain a naturally-occurring compound called capsaicin. Capsaicin gives peppers their spicy flavor but unfortunately may trigger symptoms like heartburn and abdominal discomfort in some with IBS.
If you experience IBS symptoms after eating something that is low FODMAP but contains peppers, consider limiting pepper intake
Low FODMAP Serving Suggestions
My favorite way to enjoy my low FODMAP taco seasoning is by mixing it with cooked ground turkey using the ratio described above in the “Tips for Use” section. I’ll typically serve this mixture in corn tortillas topped with shredded lettuce, diced tomato, sliced black olives, and chives.
If I’m feeling a little crazy (and have it already made 🙂 ), my husband and I will also top our tacos with a little low FODMAP salsa. If you tolerate dairy, feel free to also sprinkle on a little shredded cheddar.
To switch things up, we also enjoy making burrito bowls (taco turkey mix served over rice with the same taco toppings) or taco salads (taco turkey mix served with romaine).Print
