Tip

This versatile sauce is ideal for serving with tacos, nachos or enchiladas.

I like to chop the capsicum by hand for a chunky consistency however you can add it to the onion and garlic in step 1 if you'd prefer to save time. You could also use fresh chili instead of powder and chop with the onion and garlic.

    I found this a bit too sweet. Next time I would put in half of the sugar.

    A great quick & tasty taco sauce recipe thank you! Hadn’t read comments until now as it was an impromptu Mexican dinner with extended family (hence no jar of sauce in the cupboard) but I like the sound of the chicken tacos...could be using leftovers for that tonight I think!

    Great recipe, and I used my TM31  

    I read the tips and comments then used a red chili at step one, can of kidney beans at the last stage.  In a Thermoserver, mixed in 200gm of chopped chicken pieces (grilled in a TM Mexican spice mix). Then topped with cheese, melted under oven grill.  Added guacamole and thick yoghurt. Best nachos we've ever had. Thank You!

  • Will never buy store bought

    Submitted by caz49 on 31. March 2015 - 10:50.

    Will never buy store bought taco sauce again.  This was delicious.  We like spicy so was a little more generous with the chilli powder.

    Made this for beef nachos tonight and it was great. I added some corn, kidney beans and a tbsp of YIAH Fajita spice blend. Kids and hubby couldn't get enough of it!

    We loved it! Was the perfect texture, consistency and flavour. Just like the one we normally buy but without the nasties.

  • Was a bit thin and lack

    Submitted by Pilchy on 30. December 2014 - 21:04.

    Was a bit thin and lack lustre for nachos. I left out the water and it still needed longer to reduce and thicken a bit more. Might need to tweak it to build the flavours a bit more, a good mild sauce though tmrc_emoticons.-)
