Fresh Homemade Taco Sauce

This is a great taco sauce.  It works not only on tacos but as a dip and general condiment—everything from scrambled eggs in the morning to that burger you’re working on.

We liked this sauce a little thicker so thickened it with a slurry made with one tablespoon of cornstarch.  Simply mix the cornstarch with a bit of water to make a paste, thin it down till it is the consistency of a thick slurry, and add it to the sauce for the last few minutes of cooking.  Be sure to stir the sauce well as you add your slurry.



  1. Sauté the onion.  Add the garlic and continue to cook for a few minutes.
  2. Add the puree and spices and cook, simmering, for 8 to 10 minutes or until reduced.  Add the chicken stock and cook for another ten minutes.  Salt and pepper as needed.
