I had a hard time finding a taco sauce recipe because of my allergies to spices so I ended up looking through several recipes and finally coming up with my own. It's a little different than a normal taco sauce, it's more like a salsa. Whatever you use it for it sure is yummy! After I finished making it the other day I caught my hubby eating it right out of the jar!
- 4 c. pureed tomatoes(to make it thicker you could use tomato paste)
- 2 T minced onion
- 1/2 c. vinegar
- 1 T 1 t. garlic powder
- 1 T 1 t. garlic salt
- 2 t. paprika
- 2 t. sugar
- 4 chopped jalapenos
Hot water canner
Large sauce pan
Jars, lids, rims
Mix all ingredients together in the saucepan and simmer together for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Put into jars using the ladle leaving headspace. Don't forget to clean off the tops of the jars before you put on the lids and rims. Screw the lids on tight and process in the hot water canner for 40 minutes. Take them out and carefully set them on a flat surface. Make sure the lids have sealed before you put them on the shelf. If they haven't, re-process them. Enjoy!
