From Tomato Paste to Tomato Sauce

So Monkey and I were going to make Chicken Enchiladas last night, and about halfway through cooking, I realized Monkey didn’t check the pantry for ingredients and she needed tomato sauce!!!  Since we didn’t have any, I decided to attempt to make some!  As a quick fix, I used water!  Simply put paste in a bowl and mix in water a little at a time until you have a sauce like consistency, then use as you need it!!!
We used it in our Enchiladas and the only way to know we improvised is to have been there!!!  Tastes just as it should!!!


Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure. I look forward to continuing to share my life through word and pictures with you and love hearing your feedback! Thank you for taking the time to read and allowing me to share! I look forward to reading your comments!
