Homemade: Spaghetti Sauce & Hot Sauce

Why buy what you can make at home for cheaper!? Here are some tastier options for you to enjoy. 

HOT Sauce

4 cans Rotel 
4 jalapenos, diced, keep seeds for a spicier hot sauce
1 small onion, diced
Sea salt, Chipotle seasoning and cilantro to taste (I like mine hot, so I use a good heaping teaspoon of each)

To prepare: mix all ingredients in a blender and "puree" together. 

Pour into mason jars and refrigerate. Serve chilled. This is perfect to dip with chips, it's also good to use in recipes that call for salsa or hot sauce like enchiladas, taco salad, tacos, and much more...

Spaghetti/Marinara Sauce 

1 Family Size can of Tomato Soup
1 Large can of Tomato Sauce
1 can of Tomato Paste
2/3c Parmesan
1/4c sugar
Italian seasoning garlic to taste

To prepare: mix all ingredients in a blender and "puree" together. Pour into mason jars and refrigerate. Use in place of spaghetti sauce or marinara sauce in your family's recipes. We love to use this sauce for spaghetti, ziti, meatball sandwiches, ravioli, pizzas, and many more...
