  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Stir tomato sauce, water, vinegar, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, garlic salt, chili powder, paprika, sugar, and cayenne pepper together in a saucepan over low heat; cook at a simmer until slightly thickened, about 20 minutes. Cool sauce slightly before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • This recipe makes enough for three separate meals for a family of four. I divide the finished batch into thirds, using the first at that meal and freezing the remaining two servings, divided into small freezer bags.
