Taco Seasoning Mix

fodmapiconFor FODMAPers, this is another very simple thing to make; especially if you already have some of my Low FODMAP Chili Powder on hand. It replaces the seasoning packets we’re all used to, without all the high FODMAP ingredients. Add it to some ground beef, pork or chicken and you have some traditional seasoned taco meat all ready to go for your favorite tacos! Looking for something a little less conventional? Try my Chipotle Pork Tacos instead!

NOTE that there are two recipes on this page! The first is NOT appropriate for low histamine dieters with pepper or chili issues, but if you keep scrolling past the first, you’ll find some ideas on how to make one to suit some histamine dieters.

Low Histamine Taco Seasoning Mix (kinda)

histamineiconWhen it comes to peppers, some of us can be highly reactive, even though I’ve had a “mast cell specialist” argue this point with me. It’s pretty clear that when I eat jalapenos, no matter fresh, pickled, or powdered, I have a severe reaction. I also have a pretty nasty reaction to peppercorns of all kinds, most especially black and cayenne. I’ve figured out I can eat chipotle without any retribution, though, so I’ve taken to using this singular chili powder instead of a chili powder mix to make my taco seasoning. Therefore, my recommendation to you is that if you’re reacting to chili powder and you really don’t want to give  up the spicy Latin fare, then test each pepper individually until you find one that’s safe for you. Then use that one chili powder in this recipe.

I can’t tell you how much powder will be appropriate exactly. Each chili powder ranges massively in its heat, which is measured by scovilles. You can look them up to see what they are, as this might help you determine how much to use, but I find experimentation is usually the best way to get the right amount for you and your family.  Start with less. You can always add more, but cooling it back down once you’ve put too much chili powder in is a task I never relish or accomplish particularly well.

Low Histamine Taco Seasoning Mix (kinda)

  • 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon chili powder of choice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Pinch of sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup water

Combine ingredients. Add to 1 lb browned meat with a water and simmer on medium-low until thickened.
