So hidden food obsession secret about Lindsay #3.

  1. We all are very familiar with peanut butter
  2. roasted broccoli as my hidden food obsession secrets.
  3. Ortega sauceeeee! Oh my word Ortega sauce goes well on everything and anything Mexican. Be it, beans, tacos, nachos, just dip chips in it.. Come to think of it I’ve dipped veggies in it before.

So here it goes…

My name is Lindsay and I am a Ortega taco sauce addict.

When I get into my Mexican food kick I could easily go through 2 bottles in a month… by myself…

It is my guilty pleasure. I know the ingredients aren’t the greatest:

Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), Water, Corn Syrup, Distilled Vinegar, Salt, Modified Corn Starch, Spices, Paprika, Citric Acid, Green Chile Powder, Onion Powder.

To be exact.

I mean not horrible but also not ideal with modified corn starch and corn syrup as the third ingredient.

Pretty mild ingredients compared to other sauces out there, but nonetheless when I’m consuming the amount of taco sauce that I was, it needed to be revamped.

Make your own taco sauce at home -

My mission began when I had just a tiny amount of sauce left. Just a couple drips but I couldn’t let it go to waste. (Roland almost got in trouble for throwing it away with those last little bits of deliciousness.)

How hard could it be to make my own taco sauce? Turns out, not hard at all.

I took the back of the bottle and went to work. I figured their ‘spices’ are close to the normal spices list for taco seasoning so what wasn’t included in the ingredients list I added. Now I didn’t have green chile powder but I figured cayenne pepper would be a good substitution.

Worked like a charm. I had Roland test it out after I personally had numerous dips with a spoon and then like a lady I finally started using tortilla chips. His response? “It tastes like that taco sauce you love so much”

Booya it sure does.

Hello party in my mouth. Party on nachos, tacos, taco salad, tortilla chips… It’s party time.

Here in Michigan we are in another cold snap with -20F° temperatures with the wind chill. Yes, I wrote that right -20F°! Just disgusting. D-day for shoulder surgery is quickly coming, 5 days to be exact. My hope? The two weeks off of work and trying to recover will be the worst of the winter and I can bypass stepping foot outside the entire time.

Seriously, it’s a little disturbing how much of a homebody I am sometimes.

My meals planned?

  • Taco Salads with this epic sauce
  • Vegetable Chicken Meatball Soup
  • Buffalo Chicken Meatballs.
  • Oh! And making myself a batch of Skinny Peanut Butter Cookies because if I’m going to subject myself to having my shoulder dislocated, cleaned out, tighten my tendons and re-attached you better believe I’m eating some cookies. Just saying.

See? I don’t need to go anywhere except watch the 10 seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S that appeared on Netflix.

Besides my pathetic homebody personality there is this delicious sauce to talk about.

It is the perfect spice with a hit of sweetness like the original Ortega sauce.

Roland has Franks Red Hot Sauce as his lover of sauce choice. I now am practically begged to keep making more batches of the gluten-free buffalo chicken meatballs. Not that I’m complaining, they are pretty darn good. Besides the point though, my sauce lover of sauce choice is Ortega sauce.

Storing the worlds best taco sauce.

  • Like the original sauce you buy in the store it is slightly runny to be able to pour easily over your delicious Mexican anything food.
  • However, after you store it in the fridge for a week or so it will separate just a little, just stir it back to together before you and your good to go.
  • At first I was a little ‘put off’ by it separating but then realized there was probably a reason why the store bought version doesn’t. (i.e some modified corn starch)

Don’t need to step out on a limb when saying anything with the word ‘modified’ in front of it is the furthest from it’s naturalistic form.

Regardless this copycat sauce it definitely a must make and it is made with simple, ingredients you probably have around the house. Enjoy!
