Homemade Taco Sauce

If you are like me, you try to make anything you can, at home.  This helps control what actually goes into the food you eat!  Original recipe is at the bottom.  I did modify it since I didn’t have cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes and ended up leaving the water out.


  • 1-15oz. can of tomato sauce
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 TBSP white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey


  1.  Combine all ingredients above, into a good size bowl and then stir to combine.
  2.  I used an old prego sauce glass jar and labeled it Taco Sauce to store this in.  I used a funnel to make sure I didn’t make a mess either.
  3.  Refrigerate or serve immediately!  Store in fridge though – how long it stays good, I am unsure, but this is a super simple recipe to make and would even go great on taco salads, or any type of salads for that matter.
