Rojo Sauce Cooking Tips:

I like to use roma tomatoes or vine ripe tomatoes for this recipe. Do not skip cooking the sauce. This will bring out the flavor of the tomatoes and make the sauce 10x better.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: Place in an airtight container in the fridge for 4 days max.

Substitution Options:

Regular oregano is a good substitute for Mexican oregano but do your best to find the Mexican. The flavor is superior to other dried oregano.
