Homemade Taco Sauce
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!
You don't have to can this recipe, you can simply store it in the fridge after cooking and enjoy fresh. You may want to half the batch though unless you eat a lot of taco sauce!
Homemade Taco Sauce
You Will Need:
- 4 cups pureed tomatoes (to make it thicker you could use some tomato paste)
- 2 Tablespoon minced onion
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon and 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 Tablespoon and 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 4 chopped jalapenos
- lemon juice (1 tablespoon per pint)
You will also need:
- Hot water canner
- Large sauce pan
- Measuring cups
- Jars, lids, rims
Mix all ingredients together in the saucepan and simmer together for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Put into pint sized 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!
