Taco Bell Mild Sauce Copycat Recipe!

There’s no Taco Bell in Sweden, so I started making a homemade version of the mild hot sauce that comes in those little packets. Don’t judge me: Taco bell is my vice, my love, my old friend… and that mild sauce is golden.

      • 3 cups (7 dl.) water
      • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
      • 1 6-ounce can (175 ml. tube) tomato paste
      • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar (or white vinegar)
      • 4 teaspoons chili powder
      • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
      • 2 teaspoons salt

Tip: You can of course use this sauce on tacos, but also makes a good enchirito (enchilada + burrito) or wet burrito.The sauce is a little thick for a hot sauce, so it works well. You could also use a bit in chili con carne or in a soup base. It’s totally worth the effort!

How to:

Watch his video for instructions: but basically, dissolve cornstarch into water in a pot. Turn on the heat and add all the dry stuff, then add the rest, bring to a boil then down to a simmer for 5 minutes- Let that cool down and you’re ready to roll!

Leftovers: I store the Taco Bell style mild sauce in jars in the cabinet.
