Skip the packet and make a double batch of this Homemade Taco Seasoning for your Taco Tuesday nights! Escape the garlic and onion typically found in the packets and make this Low FODMAP version for a happy tummy.
This taco seasoning uses ancho chili powder instead of chili powder. Usually, chili powder has garlic powder in it as one of its ingredients. No kidding, it is true. I was shocked, too.
Ancho chili powder has a smokey, mild heat. Paired with the typical taco flavors like cumin and paprika, you will not miss the chili powder or that taco seasoning packet from the grocery store.
- Ancho Chili Powder
- Kosher Salt
- Ground Black Pepper
- Dried Oregano
- Dried Chipotle Pepper
- Red Pepper Flakes
- Freeze Dried Chives
See the recipe card for the exact measurements and complete instructions. Selected ingredients are based on current serving sizes measured by the Monash FODMAP App at the time of publishing. As always, follow your gut and modify as needed.
Pull out your measuring spoons and taco seasoning spices from the cabinet.
I love using a small funnel for filling the spice jar. It helps contain the messy factor. In a pinch, I used a small piece of paper rolled up to look like a funnel.
Use 2 -3 Tablespoons of homemade taco seasoning when a recipe calls for a packet of taco seasoning. Depending on your spicy and heat level, you can certainly use less too. It is the best part about making your version. Add what you love and take out what you don't. There are no rules!
Additional Ingredient Additions
- Adding Garlic - If you can tolerate garlic, add ½ teaspoon of garlic powder.
- Adding Onion - If your modified diet allows you to eat onion, add ½ teaspoon of onion powder.
