Who doesn’t love tacos? Nobody in my house, anyway! This recipe may be low in FODMAPs—no
garlic or onion necessary—but it’s got plenty of punch. Just be sure to use pure ground chile powder
rather than a chili powder blend: To get hold of it, you may need to consult with a clerk at your grocery
store or health food store or shop online. (And be aware that ancho chile powder has not yet been
tested for FODMAPs, so only use it if you know you can tolerate it.)
Stuff the spiced taco meat and toppings into corn tortillas or other gluten-free alternatives: Food for Life makes a great brown rice tortilla, for instance. Or, skip the shells entirely and make a taco salad by serving the meat and toppings over a bed of lettuce.
