From my Instagram: Homemade Taco Sauce (I also recycle and refill Taco Bell Taco Sauce Bottles)

 

I've been watching the bottle of taco sauce in the door of the refrigerator go down lower and lower...  I planned to make Mexican style foods tonight for dinner and although we have a lot of homemade canned salsa on our pantry shelves, the entree' I'm making is really best and tastes fabulous with my homemade Taco Bell style taco sauce and I can/could eat this stuff with a spoon so it was time to make more.

No worries.  It takes less than 10 minutes and I can make 4 bottles worth in one recipe!  

I've been making this for 20 years. I used to put it into small mason jars or re-purposed dressing jars, iced coffee bottles, etc.  but a number of years ago they started to sell Taco Bell sauce in the grocery store and once in a while I'd buy it.  I then save the bottles and reuse them.  

I'm doing this from memory but it's so easy and follows a 4-3-2-1 pattern, I'm sure you'll memorize it in a minute as well!


Taco Sauce

3 c water
3 t corn starch

Place in a sauce pan on the stove, turn on the heat to medium high and whisk. When it's all mixed in, add;

1 - 6 oz. can tomato paste
4 t chili powder
3 T white vinegar
2 t salt
1 t cayenne pepper powder

Whisk over medium high heat just until it starts to bubble and thicken, turn down to simmer and simmer for a few minutes before removing from heat and letting cool down before you pour it into whatever containers you wish.

 

There is a video on my story on Instagram today that includes me whisking and stirring the taco sauce on the stove.

Here are some random photos I took quickly with my cellphone of me whipping up a batch quickly while the baby was playing and giving me a few minutes to do so!
