I admit it, there are certain items that I really enjoy eating at Taco Bell. I have ever since I was a kid. It was one of our weekly lunch stops in High School. Yes, I know it’s not authentic Mexican food, but when you like something, well, you overlook things like that. One thing I enjoy at Taco Bell is a warm flavorful condiment called red sauce. It is not the hot sauce that comes in a packet; it is the steaming hot red sauce that is served on their tostadas, enchiritos and their Mexican pizza. This Taco Bell red sauce recipe is about as close to the original taste as you can get!!! It will have people going crazy when you make enchiladas at home.
It’s simple and easy to make. It will totally blow away any can or bottled sauce you buy off a grocery store shelf for just a fraction of the price. The only exception would be is if you can find a carneceria in your neighborhood.
The ingredients are simple and ones you probably already have. It has tomato sauce, cumin, white vinegar, instant minced onion, garlic powder, garlic salt, paprika (I like mind with a little smoked paprika), cayenne pepper, water and a little sugar.
That’s all you need …
1 (8 ounce) can of tomato sauce
1/3 cup water
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons dry onion flakes
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon white sugar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
(Optional 2-3 jalapenos or pasilla peppers-seeded)
Mix everything and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Serve it hot or cold and it will make an excellent enchilada sauce. The spicyness is mild by my standards but that can be tweaked with a little bit more cayenne pepper or using some blended jalapenos or for a juiced up version some pasilla peppers. It is a little bit spicier if you let it sit in the fridge overnight.
In a saucepan, add the spices and vinegar to one can of tomato sauce. Simmer for 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool. Keep refrigerated for a week. Today, I made some homemade jam, and I’ll bet I could make a batch of this and water can it.
There you have it, an easy peazy Taco Bell Red Sauce Recipe.

It probably started like a typical love story: one burrito full of shredded chicken, seasoned rice, refried beans, and creamy chipotle sauce meets a red sauce made with melted three-cheese blend and reduced fat sour cream. You know what is soon to follow and the Smothered Burrito sure knows too.
They start dating and quickly fall completely in love because it’s teenage love or the honeymoon phase as others would call it. They were quickly given their celebrity name, which you guessed it, is Smothered Burrito. It’s all about them and how they’ve never had a relationship like this one before. Of course not. Because that’s not what you said the last time or anything, Suzy. Don’t worry, we won’t call you out on it. You all reading this knows how it goes. Everything is great for the first few months, but then burrito starts to see a few red flags in sauce. It feels smothered, like a Smothered Burrito. Maybe it gets a little too jealous of other sauces and only wants to hang out with one sauce. Maybe sauce gets a little angry when burrito goes to the mall with other burritos which is rare because burrito’s friends hardly see him anymore, alone. Why can’t the two have their own friends? Don’t ask burrito or sauce that because the answer is just a blank stare (because you should know why), unless the sauce can tag along with burritos friends. So, now, burrito just spends weekends shopping for deals on lawn furniture and falling asleep to cable television at 10 P.M, a shadow of the burrito it was before being smothered by red sauce. Boys’ nights are long behind him. We’d feel kind of bad for the burrito, but honestly it’s just too dang delicious with red sauce all over it. The Smothered Burrito just wouldn’t be the same without all its sauce smothering it. If we have to choose sides, sorry, burrito, but we have sauce’s back. Don’t take it personally, we just couldn’t imagine a life without you two together. Plus, who are we kidding, it’s just a burrito, and burritos don’t have feelings. So there’s that.

Back in the pioneering days, restless westward travelers would sit around the campfire and eat cans of beans to give them the much-needed energy to take on the unknown. But now, they can just get some of their energy with a little help from the Bean Burrito.
Things are different now since the Bean Burrito came into the scene. Most of California has already been explored, and it’s definitely illegal to just light campfires anywhere you want. Don’t try it, seriously. For the sake of the California population, we kindly ask you not to go out and light a campfire just anywhere. However, the Bean Burrito, stuffed full of warm refried beans, real cheddar cheese, diced onions, and red sauce still carries on the spirit of old adventuring pioneers today. It brings back all those memories of roughing it out in the open land, pitching a tent with just a tarp and some sticks, and sparking your only source of heat with a fire that you worked so hard to get started while trying to open a can of beans with a rock. Ever try it before? Yeah, it’s pretty hard. Not recommended for the weak. The challenge is on the table should you consider testing yourself. But now, with the Bean Burrito from Taco Bell, things are so much easier. Who needs to rough it anymore? No one. Unless you’re totally into that kind of thing. Then good for you! We need more adventurous souls like you. But the Bean Burrito will give you all the feels as if you’re out in the middle of the desert telling spooky stories like you’re in the Wild West. Just saying. You can get all the campfire glory all from a warm, delicious, Bean Burrito. So fill up, and prepare for your own quest through the last real land of the unpredictable, wild, and potentially dangerous frontier…the Internet.
