Taco Bell Fire Sauce

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and puree for about 20 seconds

  2. Put the mixture into a saucepan and bring to a slight boil, stirring all the while so not to burn the contents

If your looking for the real thing, this one is darn close. I made some slight adjustments using the same ingredients, but that was to my liking. One thing I found important was to add the jalapeño at the last few seconds of blending to have it in little bits and not completely incorporated, like how it is in the packets at Taco Bell. I’ve seen this recipe copied and used by many other people using it as their own invention.
