OMG! Iâ€™m new to Recipezaar and this is the first recipe I tried out. Brought leftovers to work and drove my coworkerâ€™s nuts with the smell. Love, love, loved it.
I tried this recipe for the first time tonight, IT IS GREAT! I looked over the reviews and was really shocked at the review from Katchick, perhaps her flour was old or something and didn't thicken. I'm a Mexican food freak and this one really makes the grade....way to go and thanks for adding this recipe, I plan to make more in the morning and see how it freezes.
Not sure where Katchick went wrong but we loved this recipe. No issues with the water as it simmered down and made a nice thick sauce (not to thick though) I'v made the recipe a few time already and would suggest it to anyone. If you are worried about the water as Katchick's review stated, cut back on the amount of water, again I had no issues.
So sorry, but this was certainly not the best ever for me. The sauce (using all of the water you list in the recipe) makes this sauce less thin than a packet of taco sauce you get at Taco Bell. I had to add way more cumin, way more garlic powder, and some mexican spice to make it taste less like water. Then, I had to let the sauce reduce by simmering for a couple of hours. This just didn't work for me.
I made this recipe just as it was. WOW my husband and kids just loved it. you could taste the spice but it was not too hot. I added more cumin (we love it at our house) I added more water as I like the sauce thin. I can't say enough about this recipe. Thank you so much for posting it.
