  • 1 Tbsp garlic infused olive oil (I used FODY's garlic infused olive oil)
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 3 carrots - ‘riced/minced’ in a blender or food processor
  • 2 red peppers, diced
  • 3 Tbsp chili powder* garlic free such as ancho chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika (or regular paprika if you don't have smoked!)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (omit if using salted tomatoes/season to taste)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (28 oz) (I used no salt added)
  • 1 cup FODY's low FODMAP BBQ sauce
  • 1 can chopped green chile/jalapeños
  • 3 cups sweet potato, diced
  • 1 can lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 1 jar low FODMAP tomato sauce - I used FODY's Marinara Sauce
  • 1 cup water


  • In pan on the stove, add FODY's garlic infused olive oil & heat.
  • Add ground beef, sauté until browned.
  • Add riced/minced carrot, diced red peppers - sauté until softened, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add chili powder, cumin, paprika, stiring until the mixture becomes fragrant, about 1 minute.

  • Simmer until potatoes are fork tender.


Low FODMAP Chili Recipe Tips & Tricks:
  • I used 1 medium to large sweet potato to created my 3 cups of diced sweet potato.
  • This recipe is by no means spicy, it's more smoky and sweet. If you like a spicier chili, and your gut can tolerate it, consider adding some cayenne pepper (pace yourself, this is a SPICY seasoning!)
  • Adding some toppings is always a good idea!
Topping Ideas:
  • 1/4 cup lactose free plain greek yogurt
  • a sprinkle of cheddar cheese
  • Cilantro
  • Extra jalapeños
