Homemade Taco sauce is so easy and versatile. From this point on, you'll always make it homemade.
One of our family favorites is a good ole Taco Night after a busy day. We typically have tacos at least once every other week. It makes for such a quick and easy meal, plus they are so versatile.
We love that the whole family can mix and match on taco night; we do a wide variety from chopped brisket tacos, fish stick tacos, slow cooker shredded chicken tacos, and then the basic beef tacos. Taco nights are also a wonderful way to use up leftover meat from the week. That’s generally how we end up with so many different varieties of toppings to choose from!
One thing my husband and I love to top our tacos with, aside from salsa, is a good taco sauce. Did you know that taco sauce is actually one of the easiest foods to make at home?
It’s such a simple mix of homemade taco seasoning with a little bit of tomato sauce, water, and vinegar. In just a few quick minutes, you will have the perfect sauce to top your tacos with.
I have a homemade taco seasoning that I use regularly. The thing I love about making my own is that I can add a little bit of dill weed to the mix. It may sound a little unusual, but it is actually super tasty! Of course, I am a dill fanatic, so that could be part of it too.
We also use taco sauce in enchiladas too. If you do not have a good enchilada sauce on hand, I have found taco sauce works just as well!
Taco sauce is versatile and can be made easily at home, which will help avoid any additives that may be found in the store-bought sauce.
I like to keep taco sauce on hand as a pantry staple in our home and thankfully it last a long time too. This could even be used on top of the grilled chicken taco pizza!
