Tex-Mex Taco Sauce

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. I revamped my dietary needs to improve my health. It has worked wonders for me. I have a renewed surge of energy where I was completely exhausted before. I am not saying that this will work for everyone I am just telling you my personal experiences. I have a Functional Medical doctor and a Western Medical doctor. The Functional doctor also has me on supplements. My Western Medical doctor has seen the results of my change in eating on my lab work and other tests. Because of the lab results I have been able to go off all of my medicines but one. The one for my thyroid as I have Hashimoto’s. But even that has been reduced. I have also lost weight. This is a nice plus but my entire goal is to be healthier

I am starting to feel like me again and even have renewed strength and energy. So much energy that I have been able to go back to the gym. I am currently doing water type classes. I am trying hard to not overdo as that won’t get me anywhere.  But I want to get back to where I was as fast as possible. So it’s hard for me to take it easy. I sure hope that you all enjoy my recipes.

I created this recipe to make a Creamy Tex-Mex Salad Dressing on Build a Tex Mex Steak Salad or Lettuce Wrapped Chicken Tacos. I use this a little like my Nevada Sauce.

First, let me explain that my mother is from Sweden so I did not grow up with spicy dishes. Most of the Cuisine in Scandinavia is mild. Therefore my palate is a mild spice one. Although I do occasionally like a little more heat to things. I created this to add to taco’s or to make a salad dressing out of. If it’s in my pantry I will use it. You will see this in a couple of my recipes.
