November 9th, 2018

What takes veggie-forward taco filling to the next level? Spicy taco sauce. Aside from the punched up flavor, we love that it’s totally pantry-friendly thanks to an organic ketchup base, plus spices like chili powder and onion powder. From taco salad to fried eggs, you’ll want to drizzle this sauce on everything—trust us.
