Supreme Low-FODMAP Nachos Recipe; Gluten-free

Print Friendly Version

Low-FODMAP Nachos are one of my favorite party appetizers.  How can you go wrong with the combination of crunchy corn tortilla chips, spicy beef and cheddar cheese?  Of course, if you add a little lactose-free sour cream and my sassy low-FODMAP salsa, then your mouth will really be humming.

These low-FODMAP Nachos are so easy and disappear like magic at my football parties and family game nights. Using my low-FODMAP Happy Spices Taco Seasoning makes it even simpler!
