You can find simmer sauce in myriad varieties in most regular grocery stores, and they’re so great to have stocked in your pantry for throwing together a last minute dinner. This post isn’t so much a recipe post as it is an idea post, since there’s a million different ways you can use these sauces. This time, I made tacos!
What you add to these tacos depends on what type of simmer sauce you use. I used a harissa and roasted red pepper variety, cooked it up with some ground chicken, and topped warm corn tortillas with baby spinach and hummus – delish! And this is a dinner that takes literally no time. Cook the chicken, add the sauce, done!
