We love Mexican food around here, as long as it isn’t too spicy or hot. Maybe I should say we love the idea of Mexican food but are too cowardly to spice it up! Below is a fast and simple recipe for burrito sauce, although we use it on nacho’s, taco’s and add it to rice at times.


Basic Burrito Sauce

Basic Burrito Sauce

You will need:
Medium saucepan
Wooden spoon

1 stick butter
1 large diced onion
jalapeno peppers (diced small) I use one, but you can use as many as your taste buds allow
1 large can crushed or diced tomatoes
3 bouillon cubes (beef or chicken)
2 Tbsp flour
1/4 tsp garlic powder (optional)
1/2 tsp cumin (optional)
salt, pepper to taste

Melt butter on medium-low heat, add bouillon cubes and stir until dissolved. Add onions and jalapeno’s, simmer until soft. Slowly add flour and stir to thicken mixture. Add can of tomatoes and and bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Serve over burrito’s, rice, nacho’s or whatever you choose.

Optional: Sprinkle shredded cheese and parsley on top of sauce to garnish.
