In large skillet on medium high heat at olive oil.  Add chili powder, jalapeno  and cumin. Stir.  Cook, for 2 minutes stirring frequently, until the spices become dark.  Watch it close so it doesn’t burn.  Add tomato sauce and water, stir thoroughly.  Reduce heat to medium-low for about 20 minutes and allow to come to a slight bubble.  Done when thickens.


This red sauce brings a mexican flare to the table.  Delicious on enchiladas, topped over burritos, tacos, taco salads, quinoa, potatoes, and more. Goes great with our Enchilada recipe. Saves a bundle getting you more for less, and fresher sauce then your typical canned or jarred store sauce.
