Tomatoes – use fresh tomatoes that will char and blister to add flavour. In a pinch you can use tinned tomatoes or tomato paste thinned out with extra stock. Skip the charring step and cook to reduce the excess liquid from canned tomatoes.
Taco Seasoning – use our homemade seasoning for tacos or use store-bought seasoning if you prefer.
Chipotles in adobo or guajillo chili – both of these chillies add a nice smokiness to the sauce without too much heat. Add as much or as little chilli as you like.
