Wild for Wild Sauce

Hi, there!

Remember over two and a half years ago when I posted about being nostalgic for the "Wild Sauce" that Taco Bell used to have?

Remember when I said I'd found this recipe which claimed to re-create it?

Today I FINALLY got around to making the recipe.
Yes! It only took me two and a half years.

I have honed procrastination to a fine art achieved only by a few select masters.

(Autographs available upon request... when I get around to it.)

Anyway, the sauce!
The sauce!

I like it!

I did make some modifications to suit my tastes.

You can see the original recipe in the picture here... (click to enlarge).

Here's what I did differently:

1. I used dehydrated minced garlic instead of dehydrated minced onion.

2. Instead of one teaspoon of sugar, I used two. (It still could have used a little more, but I didn't want to run the risk of making it too sweet).

3. Instead of two teaspoons of tabasco sauce, I used about triple that amount. (What can I say. The hotter the better.)

4. Instead of plain boring vinegar, I used some of the liquid from the jalapeno jar.

5. Instead of regular chili powder, I used the extra hot variety.

6. Instead of plain cayenne from the grocery store, I used "medicinal strength" cayenne. You know, the stuff I got as a gift from "The Crotchety Old Man". (Who, by the way, I would like to thank yet again!) I blogged about it here in this post which was titled "Pay No Attention To The Steaming Intestines".

This stuff is great! I could eat it with a spoon. Seriously.
It's good and hot.

For my dinner tonight, I'm going to have it on tacos.
