My 3 Monsters: What a Coup!

What a Coup!

My friend, Kristine, is awesome. She is the mother of eleven ('nuff said, right), musician extraordinaire, well-read, and creative. She got tired of her kids going to Taco Bell and stealing sauce packets to use at home. When TB wouldn't sell her a case of sauce packets, she created her own knock-off. It's absolutely delicious. Put it in a bean burrito with refried beans and a little chopped onion and cheese and you'll never be able to tell the difference between homemade and the real thing. Really, I'm as excited about this as I've been in a while. She shared the recipe with us at Super Saturday today and I'll share it with you.

Taco Bell Mild Sauce

2 tsp. cornstarch
4 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp. cumin
1 Tbsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. sugar

To dry ingredients add:
1 small can tomato paste
3 C. water
3 Tbsp. vinegar

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.

Sure, Taco Bell bean burritos are cheap, but I seem to crave them at the most inopportune times . . . Sunday afternoons, for instance. And, let's be honest, who isn't looking to save even a few pennies these days. Enjoy!


  1. I made them this afternoon - delish! It was probably my fav class yesterday. She truly makes me want to be better. If she can do it, surely I can, right? Maybe? Sometimes...

  2. Zach cannot wait to make this. Or for me to make it, whichever comes first.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I try to respond to every one, even if it takes me a little while!
