I made tacos for supper the other night and thought it would be awesome if I could make homemade taco sauce. Since I make my own tacos from scratch, no seasoning packets, making homemade taco sauce was the next step. Here’s what I came up with:
Homemade Taco Sauce
1 cup of tomato sauce (8 oz can)
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp black pepper
Place all ingredients in small saucepan. Simmer for 2-3 minutes
That’s it! So easy!
You can adjust the “heat” of the sauce by adjusting the pepper. Use less pepper for a mild sauce. Use more pepper or use cayenne pepper for a hotter sauce.
This sauce can be frozen. Freeze in small containers and just defrost before serving.
