Homemade Taco Sauce

Linda Griffith


When we buy those taco kits from the store, we never have enough taco sauce, you know, the little bitty package of sauce in the foil envelope. This is so much better and nothing to put together. It's better than the store bought, hands down. Hope you enjoy. Make an extra batch and keep in the refrigerator. It will last for two months.
