Copycat Taco Bell Mild Sauce Recipe (1)

We love Taco Bell.

Whenever we go we always get all the sauces.

While some of the sons prefer hot and spicy Fire Sauce, I find myself wanting to play it safe some days and will stick Mild Sauce.

And when I’m feeding a crowd, I like to play it safe and keep things on the mild side.

So days when we may have over one of the sons’ scout troops or teammates and I’m serving up a taco bar, you can bet there’s a big old vat of this copycat Taco Bell mild sauce ready for everyone.

It’s super yummy and tastes just like the fast food classic sauce.

And you’ll never believe how easy it is to make it!
