Do this for each ingredient you don’t have whole by halfas well and stir in with any other powders when making. Click here for furtherinfo on this. (Link opens in new window) * * *

Making Low FODMAP Tacos
1. Take 1 lb. of ground beef (preferably 80/20) and brown it in a large pan. 2. Once the meat is cooked, drain the grease out of the pan. 3. Add 1.5 Tablespoons of the taco seasoning, and 1/3 cup of water, to the pan with the cooked meat. 4. Stir until everything has mixed together thoroughly. 5. Place meat on a gluten free tortilla or a corn tortilla. 6. Place shredded cheddar cheese and lettuce on top of meat. 7. Fold tortilla as to not spill any of the innards. 8. Shove one end of the tortilla into your mouth hole and bite down.The recipe above only really differs from the original in that it has less ofthe cayenne pepper, a little more salt, and a little bit more water added tothe mix. I’m not a fan of super spicy things and I found the original recipejust a touch spicier than I would have liked. And the addition of a little bitmore water seemed to make things mix a little better and helped coat all ofthe meat more evenly.I actually tried this last night and added 2/3 cups of water, but that seemedlike it was just a touch too much, but definitely did not make a hugedifference in the flavor, just had a bit more taco seasoned water floatingaround in the pan.If you want to spice it up a little bit, you can bump the cayenne pepper up to1/2 teaspoon instead of a 1/4, but I definitely wasn’t feeling it, and ifyou’re sensitive to peppers or spicy food, it might not be the best option foryou.

Why have you not changed your recipe?
Given the updated FODMAP information on ancho chili pepper, you may ask why Ihaven’t changed my recipe. Here are some reasons: * I am hopeful that Monash will share information about the low FODMAP serving size for ancho chili powder. * Certified products are not always accessible (especially in rural communities where I have lived and worked). This recipe offers an alternative. * A relatively small amount of ancho chili powder is (usually) eaten at a time. FODMAPs are dose-dependent, and not everyone with IBS is sensitive to excess fructose. * Other foods (or nutrients) can impact the absorption of excess fructose (and taco seasoning is rarely eaten alone). (Wang, Camilleri, Vanner & Tuck; 2019) * Compared to other FODMAP groups, the relationship between excess fructose in food and IBS symptoms is less clearly understood. (Wang, Camilleri, Vanner & Tuck; 2019) * Some people with IBS benefit from removing only the highest FODMAP-containing foods (like the onion or garlic found in regular taco seasoning). Although not often discussed online, dietitians use this less-restrictive approach in practice. * Anecdotal, but this recipe has been well-tolerated in my practice as a dietitian.”
