Make the worlds greatest blender taco sauce in minutes with this easier version of Tacolicious’ legendary orange taco sauce.
Not only is this sauce gorgeous, but it’s also equally delicious. I hint of sweet, a ton of spice, and the just the right amount of heat. This sauce is perfect for tacos of course but it is amazing on grilled pork, fish, and even wings!
Based on the legendary sauce boasted about in The Tacolicious cookbook, with a few ingredients that you may already have at home, you can make this wonder sauce in a matter of minutes.
My version of the sauce I use diced canned tomatoes in green chilies instead of roasting them myself. You can also substitute canned fire roasted tomatoes as well. This one is perfect just as it is in my opinion but I will let you be the judge. Let me know what you think!

- 10 oz diced tomato or with green chilies
- 4 tbsp white distilled vinegar
- 2 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 5-10 dried arbol chilies
- 2 dried guajillo chilies
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- Remove the stems and sees from the dried chilies. Add them along with the rest of the ingredients to a blender. Use the purée/blend mode on high speed for 3-4 minutes. More or less time may be needed for this depending on your machine. The tomatoes and chilies should be dissipated and the sauce should be a beautiful bright orange color.
