  1. 3 C water, 6 oz tomato paste, 2 tsp organic corn starch, 3 Tbsp white vinegar, 4 tsp chili powder, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp cayenne pepper.
    Dissolve cornstarch in water, add all dry ingredients now and then tomato paste & vinegar. Bring to a boil, simmer for 5 minutes or so to get the right consistency.

  2. every time I go to taco bell they give me like 5 packets of sauce. now I can make mine and forget about their stuff

  3. I'm never happy to see anyone, I just carry a chilli cheese bean burrito in my pocket every time I leave the house. :0

  4. I just made this recipe tonight (2/2016). It is really close. The biggest difference is the level of spiciness. When I make it again I will use less cayenne pepper, and see if I can get it close to the mild sauce.

    I have followed other taco bell sauce recipes, however this one is the closest I have tried so far. The other recipes tend to use tomato sauce rather than tomato paste and a variety of other spices. I think tomato paste is key in giving the right 'tomato' flavor. The 'tomato' flavor was always off with the 'tomato sauce based' recipes. Other spices including Cumin and Garlic powder have been suggested in other recipes. Personally, I don't find these additions to make a better match.

  5. tasted tomato soup AS IS…I added 1tbs jalapeno peppers 1tbs chipotle pepper and 3tbs cumin…still doesn't taste like the sauce but its much better than it started. I wanted more of a fire/hot recipe but used this as a base. base did NOT taste like mild, not even close

  6. The red chili powder is key to quality taco sauce. Lot's of choices, but make sure the one you use isn't stale. I bet the Taco Bell chain uses a low cost but decent Cali Anaheim red pow with lots of Asta color and not much heat. Mix a little Cayenne or Chipotle powder into your Anaheim Red to kick it up a notch or three.

  7. HI PLEASE do a review for the CREAMY JALAPEÑO SAUCE that taco bell uses on it's chicken quesidllas Im dying to know the recipe and they won't let me buy a bottle of it. Thanks I like your videos btw

  8. Just made a batch and have to admit it's pretty close . Make a batch then adjust another to your taste . I use to mix the mild and the hot and that was perfect for me , so next time I'll try half the amount of cayenne pepper .
