Homemade Taco Sauce

Have you noticed we like Mexican inspired foods?  I know, every other recipe here is Tex Mex or something similar.  It's what we eat, so it's what I share.  My daughter loves taco sauce. I'm more of a salsa gal.  But Danielle loves taco sauce. We always seemed to be buying it.  Then we caught on to how easy it is to make it!  

She's the one who makes it now.  Sometimes we cheat and just use some homemade Taco Seasoning.  Danielle likes it pretty mild but you can change up the spices and make it as spicy as you like. 

Homemade Taco Sauce

15 oz. can of tomato sauce
1/3 cup water, more for desired consistency
1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. cumin
2 tbsp. onion, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. chili flakes (less if you don't want it spicy)

Mix all together and blend in a blender or food processor. Add water until it is at desired consistency. Cook in saucepan to heat up the flavors.  Taste and season as desired.
