Mondays on Living Large in Our Little House will generally be for tips in living in a small space. Heather suggested the other day that I publish my husband’s family taco sauce recipe. We usually use store bought canned tomatoes, but I will be making several batches from fresh tomatoes in the coming month to can. Since living smaller usually means living simpler and more frugally, making your own sauce falls into the category of a small living tip.
Campbell’s Taco Sauce Recipe
2-3 cans of Mexican blend tomatoes (if using fresh tomatoes, you will need to add jalapenos to taste)
1 can of original Rotel tomatoes, drained
1 large onion
1 tblsp. Taco seasoning from envelope
1-2 tblsp. Cilantro, or about ¼ chopped fresh to taste
For smooth sauce, blend the Mexican tomatoes, one can at a time in a blender, along with the onion. If you like chunky salsa, use a food processor and pulse. Put into a saucepan. Add drained Rotel tomatoes, taco seasoning and cilantro. Mix well and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and simmer for about ½ hour. Allow to cool and serve at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate leftovers for up to 1 week.
I’m always looking for good recipes. If you have any, share them with us in the comments section.
