What You Need
Low FODMAP Taco Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1.5 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
Taco Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp low FODMAP garlic infused oil

  • 1 head iceberg lettuce (large leaves reserved for wraps)
  • 1 common tomato (chopped)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese (40g reserved)
  • 1 Avocado (1/8 reserved)
What You Do
Low FODMAP Taco Seasoning
  1. Seal all seasoning ingredients in a Ziploc back and shake until thoroughly mixed.

Taco Preparation and Assembly
  1. Heat garlic oil in a frying pan on medium and stir in beef. Scramble fry until cooked through. Drain. Return frying pan to heat.

  2. Combine 1 tbsp of taco seasoning with enough water to cover the bottom of the frying pan. Pour over meat and stir to combine. Allow the liquid to simmer until water has evaporated (10-15 minutes).

  3. Assemble toppings: Cut off the bottom of the head of lettuce and gently peel away the large outer leaves for wraps if desired. Shred the rest for toppings. Dice tomatoes and avocados, and shred the cheddar.  Serve warm.


If you are having trouble removing the lettuce leaves without ripping them, you can double them up when making your tacos.  Just make sure you cover any tears or holes as best you can and have a napkin handy!
