If there's one thing I miss most from before Low FODMAP, it's definitely super inexpensive tacos from the local Taqueria. They're quick, filling and you can feed two people for less than ten dollars.
My fondness for the flavors is steadfast, but it was time to let go of the symptoms that would ensue the following day. I've already shared my super quick and easy Low FODMAP Fish Tacos, if you're looking for a different take. But here, I'm going to share a simple recipe for homemade Low FODMAP Taco Seasoning, which is a highly versatile pantry staple. Then we can apply our seasoning mix to a 20-minute Chicken Fajitas meal - one you can whip up in the time it would take to swing by for takeout.
Low FODMAP Taco Seasoning
Makes 3 TBS, 3 servings
3 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground coriander seed
1/2 tsp ground cumin seed
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Mix all ingredients together - simple as that! You can multiply the recipe to make larger batches to hang out in your pantry. Note that I am using ground California Chilies for the chili powder, which is very mild. If you can't find California Chili Powder, try substituting paprika. The cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes do add a fair bit of heat. For those who prefer a milder taste, be sure to use a mild chili powder, omit the cayenne, and decrease the red pepper flakes to a pinch.
