Texas Style Picante Sauce

Top Review by Gary S.

Great base recipe . I needed to clean out my garden so I used :4 Cajun Belle ,2 Jalapeno , 2 Habanero, and 2 Mariachi peppers. Also reduced the sugar by 1/2.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Substitution: 1 1/2 Habanero instead of Jalapeno makes this warm but not too hot For Making Texas Style Picante Sauce: Combine jalapeno pepper, garlic, tomato paste, sugar, vinegar, alum and spices in blender or food processor.
  2. Process until desired consistency.
  3. Combine chopped vegetables in large sauce pan.
  4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes.
  5. Pour into hot sterilized 1 pint jars leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Seal and process in boiling water bath for 15 minutes or pressure canner for 5 minutes at 10 pounds of pressure.
