NOTE: This chili has a bit of a bite to it but it doesn't burn your throat. My family likes spicy food, but if you prefer something more mild, just reduce the amount of chili powder and/or red pepper flakes.

* Be sure to carefully read the ingredients of Italian sausage, many contain onion and/or garlic.

** Be sure to use FODMAP Free Chicken Broth or stock (make your own or reconstitute and use a FODMAP Free Chicken Stock concentrate).

*** Be sure that the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes that you use are FODMAP Free -- many off-the-shelf brands contain onion and/or garlic.
