Taco Bell Fire Border Sauce
For years Taco Bell customers had only the “Mild” and “Hot” varieties of free taco sauce blister packs to choose from to add a bit of zing to their fistful of tacos. That is, until a recent addition to the hot sauce selection kicked the heat-o-meter up a few notches. While true hot sauce freaks might find this sauce to yet be on the mild side when compared with the glut of habanero-based sauces on the market today, it’s definitely a recipe that improves on the Mexican fast-food chain’s original formulas if you’re one of the many who get a rush from the tastebud tingle.
One 6-ounce can tomato paste
3 cups water
3 tablespoons vinegar
3 tablespoons finely minced canned jalapeno slices
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons corn starch
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
dash garlic powder
1. Combine the tomato paste with the water in a medium saucepan and whisk until smooth.
2. Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
3. Heat mixture over medium/high heat until it begins to boil. Continue to cook for about 3 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat.
4. When sauce has cooled, poured it into a sealed container and refigerate. (http://www.topsecretrecipes.com)
