Turkey & Butternut Squash Chili (Bean Free)

FODMAP safe chili

I grew up with my Dad making chili for us whenever the weather dipped below 75 degrees which for some of us we call a Texas winter.  I cannot remember the specifics of his recipe but I do remember the delicious smell filling up the house.   His version used a chili package as the base which was delicious but high sodium and definitely not FODMAP safe with the garlic and onion seasoning.  Trust me when I say this is must recipe to add to your IBS diet plan.

I’ve never been a huge fan of beans in general but definitely not in my chili.  Lucky for me beans are one high FODMAP food that I do not feel like I am missing out on.  I love the addition to the butternut squash for a different texture and dimension.  After I made this my husband who is a vocal soup and chili hater, he surprisingly really liked it. Big win for me!

What is your favorite comfort food in the fall and winter?  I would love to hear!

fyi, as shown, this recipe is NOT fodmap safe.
1. only the green part of green onions is safe, the white is not.
2. The brand of chili powder you show contains garlic and is therefore not safe. It’s very hard to find a chili powder blend that is safe.
3. Not 100% but I think maybe the tomato serving is a bit high as well. Would need to check on that.

Anyone doing elimination would not be safe eating this.
