Booth's Killer Picante Sauce

Claudia McClaran


Many years ago, someone in the family collected recipes from descendants of my great grandparents, William M. and Florence E. (Snodgrass) Whaley and had them compiled into a cookbook. I am posting those recipes here so that they will not be lost. This recipe was submitted by Janey and Booth Outlan.

pinch tips: How to Peel Tomatoes



No-Cook or Other


2 lb
ripe tomatoes (approximate weight)
several medium
onions, sliced and diced
2 Tbsp
2 Tbsp
minced garlic
2 Tbsp
mexican chili powder (hot)
2 tsp
white pepper (use less if using black pepper)
1 bunch
fresh cilantro
jalapenos, fresh, chopped and seeded
salt, to taste
tomatillos, fresh, chopped (optional)
1 large
jar pace picante sauce (hot or medium, your choice)

Directions Step-By-Step

Run all the vegetables through your Cuisinart or equivalent food processor. Puree about 1/2 the tomatoes and onions, then mix the spices into it. Leave the other 1/2 coarse chopped to give a better texture and visual appeal.
Add Pace, which contains thickness that will help keep the sauce from seeming watery, and it contains enough preservatives to keep the sauce from spoiling quickly.
