Definately nothing spicy. Cut all the mexican foods, as even in mild dishes they usually put at least a little chili. Also fat irritates the bowels.
And I heard that a lot of people get irritated bowels from dairy products. Try going without milk, cheese,...for a week and see how you feel. Good luck!

A couple suggestions for IBS:

1) See if you can determine which foods may be causing the IBS by keeping a record of what you eat and see when you get symptoms.

2) Once determined, try to avoid those foods, plus anything high-fat, spicy, or dairy. White flour is also usually a big culprit (you may have excess yeast in the bowel). Also any big gas-producing foods and large amounts of coffee or alcohol.

3) Take a good probiotic to help heal the bowels. Primal Defense is the best one out there; it can be obtained at any Vitamin Shoppe store.

4) Eat smaller meals and eat more slowly.

5) At some point it would be helpful to see if you have any food allergies. For example, I discovered I had a wheat allergy and it was causing me all kinds of problems. This you may want to do now or in the future some time....
