Homemade Picante Sauce

Collection of picante sauce recipesjump to the recipes

Picante is Spanish for piquant, or spicy. In Italian the word is piccante.

Picante sauce is typically a tomato based sauce that has hot peppers in it. It's smoother than most salsas which contain the same ingredients of diced tomatoes, peppers, and onions.

It can be used as a sauce in cooking, adding it to dishes like enchiladas, tacos, burritos and other Tex-Mex style recipes. It can also be used as a dip with tortilla chips. You can use it anywhere you would use salsa or ketchup (try it with scrambled eggs!).
