This one-pot taco skillet is super easy! It’s possible you have all ingredients in your fridge/ freezer and pantry now. This recipe works for gluten free diets, low FODMAP and also my son’s fructose malabsorption.

I make a homemade mix of taco seasoning that includes smoked paprika, cumin, salt and pepper and Tajin. But Fody makes a safe low FODMAP taco seasoning that’s good too. Often times I will also add fresh cilantro to the finished dish. Cilantro adds a nice pop of freshness, not to mention it is really nutritious.

Family friendly, one-pot beef taco and rice skillet.

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 5 1x


  • 1 lb ground sirloin
  • 2Tb low FODMAP taco seasoning
  • 1 cup rice
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels (if tolerated)
  • 8 ounce low FODMAP tomato sauce (I typically rely on our favorite marinara sauce.) 
  • 5 green onion tops
  • 1/2 cup low FODMAP salsa
  • 1 cup  lactose free cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef cook 5 to 7 minutes or until beef is no longer pink. Drain fat if necessary.
  2. Stir in taco seasoning. Add rice to skillet, stir well. Add 1 1/2 cups of broth, tomato sauce and salsa to skillet, stir.
  3. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until rice is fully cooked and liquid has absorbed, about 20 minutes. Test rice after 20 minutes, add more liquid if necessary. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Stir in corn and green onion tops (reserving a few for garnish). Top with cheddar cheese.
  5. Cover pan, remove from heat and allow cheese to melt. Spoon into bowls. Top with a sliced avocado and chopped green onion if desired; enjoy!
