If you like the flavor of Taco Bell's sauce but don't like the burn, this is the sauce for you. It used to be that you could only get this sauce in the little blister packs from Taco Bell restaurants, but now the chain has partnered with Kraft Foods to sell the stuff in 7.5-ounce bottles in supermarkets. For the record, those bottles of hot sauce will set you back around $1.59 at the store, while the 6-ounce can of tomato paste required for this copycat Taco Bell mild sauce recipe is only 59 cents—and you end up with more than three times the amount of sauce.

This is our go to Taco Sauce. I do add a an extra tsp of corn starch, because we like the sauce a little thicker. I have shared this recipe with everyonce who had tried it and a few who just need a good Taco Sauce.

Never followed a recipe in my life. I did this because it looked so easy. I did everything wrong and it still was great. I could not believe it. Thanks Todd. I am about to make it again and totally trust your directions this time but I thought I would first check out other knock offs. Never mind. They are so complicated!
