How spicy was the chili? I get reactions from spicy food in general. It possibly could be a reaction to spicy food.

I had some chili this week , not too hot and spicy but it really did a number on me so it will be a long while before I attempt chili again

Chili gives me gas from the beans, but other than that, I can eat it safely.

Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence. 
Started Meds:  Apr 9 08 500mg 5ASA (salofalk) to ease flare, tapering, stopped. 
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
 Added: tumeric and probiotics.

I love it too- the last time I ate beef chili, I darn near died! No joke. I have had veggie chili since then, w/out too many problems. I eat very small portions, & only eat it once in a great while. I miss it..... cry   Nothing better than spicy chili, with a cold beer & some tortilla chips. I'm actually planning to make some veggie chili soon- if I eat a little bit, I find it helps me with regularity.

that is the craziest study!!! I suppose if you make a nice mild chili, it wouldn't have any effect on IBD. I only use 1 jalapeno, which is a pretty mild pepper as they go.

When I was flaring, I couldn't eat either spicy foods or beans. Now, thank goodness, I can eat both in moderation. I'm looking forward to some good chili this winter!
