Fiesta Marinara Sauce

Yes, sirree...this is one of my favorite examples of cross-cultural cooking. I love the full, fresh flavor of Italian red sauce combined with the zest of Mexican red sauces.

What You'll Need

  • 1 can (10¾ ounces) tomato purée
  • 3 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 fresh jalapeño pepper, stem and seeds removed, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

What to Do

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large saucepan; mix until thoroughly combined.

  2. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve immediately.

    Makes about 4 cups.


Serve over pasta and top with shredded Monterey Jack cheese for a real "south of the border" pasta fiesta.
