If you’re here, then most likely you’re just as obsessed with Taco Bell’s Quesadilla Sauce as the rest of us. And that means you’re going to love this simple recipe.
TANGY. SWEET. SAVORY. DELICIOUS! This sauce has a permanent space in my fridge. We use it on just about everything from Mexican dishes to scrambled eggs, to a dipping sauce or even a salad dressing over our favorite crunchy greens! The only downside to this recipe is how fast you will watch it disappear. Over and over and over and over!
HOW TO MAKE COPYCAT TACO BELL QUESADILLA SAUCE
Before diving in, consider doubling the batch right off the bat! This recipe makes a modest portion that my crew can blow through in a single sitting. You will thank yourself if you bring it super-sized on this one.
Gather up your ingredients and get your mixing bowl ready. For this recipe, you will need a food processor.
We use fresh jalapeno for this recipe. It really levels it up for maximum zip! Slice and remove all of the seeds and veins. Be careful not to rub your eyes after chopping!
Depending on the size of your food processor, it may be possible to just pile all of the ingredients in and give it a blending! However, if your processor is on the small side, you will want to add ingredients a few at a time, starting with the jalapeno.
Once you have all of the glorious things acquainted, pop this in the fridge in a covered dish and let it cool. I like to make it the night before to ensure maximum flavor!Print
- 1 fresh jalapeno
- 1tsp chopped fire roasted diced green chilies
- 1TBS juice from fire roasted diced green chilies
- 1/4 Cup Mayo
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp smoked cayenne pepper
- Add sliced jalapeno to the food processor, after removing all seeds and veins. Blend until smooth. If you do not have a food processor – finely mince the fresh jalapeno.
- Combine diced green chilis, chili juice, mayo and spices. Continue to blend in food processor. Mix well if you do not have a processor!
- Refrigerate until needed!
It’s obviously great with quesadillas, but it’s also great on ALL THE THINGS. Consider using it on scrambled eggs, over a green salad, with chicken nuggets or even on your turkey sandwich.
