A simple taco sauce to serve with any type of tacos. Adds that extra bit of flavour and sauce. It rivals any jar you'll buy from the store - except you know exactly what goes in it! Great to freeze in serving size portions.
1. Tomato passata
is called Tomato Puree in America. It is just plain, pureed tomato. It is NOT tomato paste which is sour, concentrated tomato. It creates a thicker smoother sauce than using crushed canned tomatoes. In Australia it's available in supermarkets in the pasta section and the good value ones are cheaper than canned tomato.
- a can of green chilies would be terrific, as would chopped jalapeños (fresh or canned, adjust to heat). For a hit of fresh, stir in finely chopped coriander/cilantro leaves.
3. Freezing -
I like to freeze in serving size portions. Defrost, warm if required, give it a good mix then it's good to go!
