Easy, dairy-free creamy taco sauce

I was saving this “recipe” for when I had a whole bunch of dairy-free/casein-free substitutions for milk products.  Well, five months into my two youngest kids being casein-free, I don’t have a whole lotta substitutions to report.  This one, though, we use all the time.

CF Creamy Taco Sauce 

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup taco sauce (we use Pico Pica)

Mix until smooth.  Use immediately.

That’s it!

Since my son was already gluten-free, he has lived most of his life on his favorite:  tacos made with soft corn tortillas, chicken and cheese.  But, after subtracting dairy, the tortilla and the chicken made for what we call, “a dry biscuit.”  He’s soy free (or at least, greatly soy-reduced), so we don’t get soy-based cheese, and I was rather desperate to come up with something he could put on his tacos, as plain taco sauce or salsa was too spicy for his 5yo tastebuds.  This sauce is used at least two times a week in our house.

  1. The words taco and sauce don’t go together in my book…lol.

  2. did you use casein free mayo? I was looking at ShopNSave the other day, and they have a vegan mayo without dairy!

  3. Amy ~ Thanks for the comment! Most mayo is already dairy-free, casein-free. The “problem” with mayo that would lead one to buy vegan is from the eggs that are in mayo, not the dairy. I just double-checked on the websites of both Kraft and Best Foods, and confirmed that both are certified Kosher, which automatically means they’re completely dairy/casein free.
