I think ya’ll are starting to realize how much I love Mexican food! But what’s not love, right? Ok, I did grow up on the Texas/Mexico border, so these flavors are as familiar to me as hamburgers and hotdogs are to most.
I also know that you all love Mexican food! How do I know this? Well, Taco Bell was named America’s favorite restaurant, that’s how.
But before we get into that debate, let’s just all agree that we love Mexican food! And what goes great with Mexican food? A good taco sauce.
This taco sauce is really an all purpose sauce that can be drizzled on tacos, burritos, nachos…doesn’t this look yummy?
