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!
