Purchasing canned or bottled sauces…or even seasoning packets to quickly mix up at home, can be quick-n-easy in our busy world, but it can also mean “less healthy” eating.
Especially if you’re making a Mexican Chili Sauce; boiling, blending, measuring, stirring and simmering isn’t always an option if time is tight.
Well, here is some good news…this recipe for Homemade Taco Sauce is quick-n-easy, contains all natural ingredients and tastes amazing!
In fact, this Taco Sauce is sooooo delicious, it’s almost mandatory to keep a jar in our refrigerator for quick-n-easy use…not just as a sauce but also as a seasoning while cooking.
Words can never say how delicious this sauce is, so I really hope you give it a try and find out for yourself.
Taco Sauce Recipe:
- One 15 oz can tomato sauce
- 2/3 cup water
- 2 Tbsp white distilled vinegar
- 1 Tbsp cumin
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp ground cayenne
In a saucepan, stir all the ingredients together. Bring to a boil and turn down to a simmer on medium-low heat for about 20 minutes. And that’s it…told you it was easy. 🙂
Hack: Mix several batches of dry ingredients together in a jar. This is your “Taco Seasoning Mix”. When you’re ready to make this Taco Sauce, add 1/8 of a cup of the mix with the wet ingredients and follow the rest of the directions.
You can use the “Taco Seasoning Mix” for tacos and everything else too…Spanish rice, burritos, fajitas, enchiladas, eggs etc. Happy Cinco de Mayo!
