A simple taco sauce that’s quick to make and rivals store bought! You know exactly what goes in it, keeps for ages, and is terrific to serve with any type of tacos or as a dipping sauce for burritos, to drizzle over nachos or even as a dipping sauce for chips!
QUICK AND EASY TACO SAUCE
This is a quick and easy taco sauce that’s very versatile. It tastes as good as anything you can buy from the stores with the added bonus that you know exactly what goes in it, and you can customise it to your taste.
Just place the ingredients in a saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes to bring the flavour together. That’s it!
This makes more than enough for one batch of tacos – but it keeps perfectly either in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for months.
