Low FODMAP Mexican Taco Dip Recipe

It’s Cinco de Mayo and we’re hosting a Mexican Fiesta Party at our place today. I was looking for an easy Mexican recipe that could be used as a taco dip with tortilla chips or wrapped in a soft tortilla shell. To make it convenient to serve while people come and go, I wanted it to be warming constantly in a crock pot. It’s important that it adhere to the low FODMAP diet since 2 our of guests also struggle with IBS. And, of course, it should be delicious for everyone at the party!

While I didn’t find the ideal taco dip recipe anywhere that met the above guidelines, I decided to create my own. I was a little nervous creating something completely new, but it turned out to be amazing and delicious! I got rave reviews on the Mexican Taco Dip and was asked for my recipe multiple times. So, here it is…

Low FODMAP Mexican Taco Dip Recipe

Low FODMAP Crock Pot Mexican Taco Dip Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Ground Turkey (Ground Beef Can be Substituted)
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil (Try Garlic Infused Olive Oil for a Great Flavor)
  • 2 14.5 oz Cans of Diced Tomatoes, Drained (Check the ingredients. It’s common for this to contain garlic and/or onion. I use Del Monte Petite Diced Tomatoes.)
  • 1/2 Cup Black Olives
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 2 Cups Shredded Cheese
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Cilantro
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Chives
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

Directions:

  1. Dice Red Bell Pepper into small pieces.
  2. On stovetop, grill Ground Turkey and diced Red Bell Pepper in Olive Oil in a pan.
  3. Add Salt, Pepper, Cumin, Paprika, Oregano, Parsley and Cayenne Pepper to pan.
  4. While grilling, dice Cilantro, Chives and Black Olives into small pieces. Set Aside.
  5. When Ground Turkey is cooked thoroughly, move it, the peppers and spices to medium-sized crock pot, turned on high.
  6. Add diced Cilantro, diced Chives, diced Black Olives, Diced Tomatoes and Shredded Cheese to crock pot.
  7. Mix thoroughly and cover crock pot.
  8. Stir sporadically for the next hour and then turn crock pot to low.
  9. Drain any excess oil.
  10. Serve with tortilla chip, corn tortilla shells and/or taco shells.
  11. Continue to stir sporadically throughout the party and after 3-4 hours (or when its gone), turn crock pot off.

Notes:

  • For a spicier mix, add more Cayenne Pepper or add Diced Jalapenos, Diced Banana Peppers, Diced Green Chilis or Crushed Red Pepper.
  • Garlic Infused Olive Oil is a great addition because it adds the garlic flavor without adding the Fructans.
  • I ate mine sprinkled over tortilla chips (like nachos). Yum!

  1. I made this and it turned out great but the cheese came out chunky and not smooth. I think the problem was using cheddar and mozzarella blend. What cheeses did you use? Thanks!
