The Best Low-FODMAP Classic Ground Beef Taco Recipe; Gluten-free

Although this recipe has not been lab tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients (using available FODMAP data at time of posting)

Serves 8 (recipe can be reduced by half easily)

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 22 minutes

Total time: 27 minutes



    • can also use low-FODMAP soft shells if preferred (corn only)
    • Avoid pre-blended ‘Mexican’ style cheeses as these often contain onion powder (shocking, I know!)
  • 1 cup chopped canned black olives
  • Low-FODMAP Salsa recipe, optional
  • Chopped cilantro and limes for garnish


  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, add the infused olive oil, warm the oil
  • Place the ground beef in skillet and cook the meat until it’s browned, then drain the fat (about 7 minutes)
  • Add the low-FODMAP Happy Spices Taco Seasoning and stir to combine
  • Add 3/4 cup hot water and stir
  • Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes
  • Serve immediately, or refrigerate until use (tastes great a day later)
  • While beef is cooking, warm taco shells in microwave oven or standard oven as per package instructions
    • My package recommends baking at 325 F for 6-7 minutes or microwaving for 45 seconds
  • Layer meat in the bottom of the shell and top with lettuce, cheese, diced tomatoes, olives
  • Top or dip into low-FODMAP salsa!

  • These low-FODMAP Ground Beef Tacos are the best.

    1. Dustin,
      Thank you SO much for commenting! Feedback like yours warms our heart, especially hearing that our tacos are enjoyed by your son as well. You made our day 🙂

  1. New Favorite Taco Seasoning

    We did not have the money to order the taco seasoning so I followed the substitute seasoning that was listed. It is absolutely amazing! Spicey and taste like what taco seasoning should without the garlic and onion in it. We will use this for every taco night from here on out 🙂

  2. What is considered one serving to keep it low FODMAP? One taco, 2? Sorry, I’m new at this and helping my daughter with this new diet.

    1. Thanks Holly,
      If you make this recipe as suggested, with 16 shells, then the 8 servings would mean 2 tacos per person. If you used fewer shells (like 8) and made them fuller, then it would be 1 taco per person. Hope that helps! Good luck 🙂

    1. Hi Dave,
      We aren’t really sure what you mean by ‘since when’. Cheese is low in lactose, which allows a reasonable portion size to be consumed on the low-FODMAP diet (about 40 g for most cheeses). Some sources are less reliable for what you read about the right things to consume. We suggest checking out our low-FODMAP Happy Gut Guide. Good luck!

  3. family night

    These are good for family nights nice classic tacos and looks good rated a four out of five nice recipe

  4. Taco Tuesday

    We have had this recipe several times and is one of the few things that my sons will eat. They are 4 and 7. I also make the salsa recipe to go on top. Both are a family favorite.

    1. Hi Traci!
      Thank you so much!! Your comment warmed our hearts. Please stay in touch:). Your boys sound like a ton of fun!

  5. Enjoyed this meal

    I enjoyed the meal using this recipe, thanks for producing it. However the meat slightly lacked flavour, and I used substitutes for taco seasoning, half a tsp of every seasoning but it just didnt come out right, not sure what I did wrong?

  6. Amazing!!

    I’m new to cooking and I tried these tacos. They were pretty easy to make and so delicious. Will definitely make them again the future.

    1. Hi Stephanie,
      We are so happy to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to comment. Have a great day 🙂
