Taco Sauce

I never thought I'd be posting any recipe related to tacos!  Never a fan of hot and spicy foods, tacos just didn't appeal to me.  When my boys were growing up, I used to buy a box of, think it was Old El Paso brand, taco mix.  They loved it.  I didn't!  That was my idea of what tacos were like.

More recently, I liked the idea that you can be creative and tacos don't have to always be the same ingredients.  I can assure you my homemade tacos do not involve a store bought packet of "sauce."  No, I have learned to make homemade tortillas and am experimenting with dozens of different ingredients!

For certain types of tacos, this sauce goes well.

1 (16 oz) can tomato sauce

2/3 cup water

2 tablespoons white vinegar

1 tablespoon ground cumin

2 teaspoons onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon garlic salt

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer until slightly thickened, about 20 minutes.  Cool slightly before serving.
