Try it...I don't think you will ever go back to the store bought stuff again.
This recipe makes enough for dinner...I will post the LARGE recipe for canning in August when we are all in the "canning mode".
5 c. tomato juice
1 T apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 T chili powder
1 T salt
1/4 c. sugar
dash of oregano
dash of cinnamon
shake of ketchup
1/4 c. cornstarch for thickening, mix with water until it makes a semi-thin paste.
Add all ingredient, EXECPT for the thickening, into a sauce pan. Bring to a boil then add thickening, a little at a time, until its thick enough (if you want your sauce thicker, make more thickening...if you want it thinner, don't add as much). Turn down heat and stir for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and use it on your favorite mexican dish.
* If I am using this for dinner, I often add cooked ground beef to the sauce.
