This tangy sauce is exactly what you need to prepare Potato Enchiladas or a delicious Pizza. Keep some on hand to whip those recipes up in mere minutes!

Ingredients

  • 1 large yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 pounds tomatoes, cored and roughly chopped
  • 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons sweet paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked hot paprika
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1½ teaspoons dried oregano
  • Sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon arrowroot powder

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the onion, tomatoes, tomato paste, and garlic. Blend until smooth. (Do this in batches if necessary.)
  2. Transfer to a saucepan and stir in the cumin, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, a generous pinch of salt, and 3 cups water. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the arrowroot powder with 1 tablespoon water, stirring well to avoid any lumps. Add this to the sauce, stirring well.
  4. Simmer, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes, until the sauce reduces a bit and is fragrant. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Smells great! Enhanced it with 1 chopped habanero pepper; otherwise, followed the recipe to a tee. Faaaar too watery. Made the Four-layer Enchilada Cakes far too watery. Either needs to be cooked down more, or simmered uncovered after the thickening agent is added, or needs more of the thickening agent (arrowroot)
