Low FODMAP Taco Seasoning (Naturally Low Carb, Whole30)

  • Author: Gail
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 7 tbsp 1x


Simplify low FODMAP taco and fajita making with this 5-minute low FODMAP taco seasoning! This recipe is also naturally low carb, Keto, Paleo and Whole30 compliant (although check labels of individual spices for sulfites and other additives). Please note: this recipe contains spicy ingredients, which may be problematic for some people with IBS. See notes for further information.


  • 2 tablespoons chili powder*
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 tablespoon dried chives
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne*
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Add all the ingredients to a small bowl or air-tight container (such as a glass jar) and whisk or cover and shake until well combined.
  2. Add to your favorite Mexican dishes, like my Low FODMAP Taco Salad and my Low FODMAP Grilled Chicken Fajita Salad.


  • Chili powder: Although low FODMAP in servings of up to 1 teaspoon or 2 grams, chili powder contains capsaicin, which may trigger adverse symptoms in some individuals with IBS. I use a blend of chili powder that contains low FODMAP ingredients; be sure the chili powder you choose does not contain high FODMAP ingredients, such as garlic and onion powder.
  • Cayenne: hasn't been tested for FODMAPs but is generally thought to be low FODMAP in small quantities. Cayenne also contains capsaicin, which may be problematic for some people with IBS. 
  • For use in tacos: I typically add 2 1/2 tablespoons of this low FODMAP taco seasoning, 1 tablespoon garlic-infused olive oil, and 1/3 cup water to 1 pound of cooked ground beef and sauté on low heat on the stove top until the juices are mostly gone from the skillet, about 5 minutes. See my Low FODMAP Taco Salad recipe for further details.
  • For use in fajitas: I create a marinade consisting of garlic-infused olive oil, regular extra virgin olive oil, and lime juice and add 3 tablespoons of seasoning to the marinade. See my Low FODMAP Grilled Chicken Fajita Salad recipe for more specific details.
