Super simple chilli and tomato sauce
This is quickly becoming my go to sauce for pretty much everything, it works well as a sauce for meat, fish and even on pizza, the base sauce can be spiced up however you want, If you want Mexican flavour add Mexican spices, if you want to add smoked chilli then add smoked chilli, if you want to make it fresh and zingy add fresh chilli and lime, it works with pretty much everything I’ve tried, it’s especially good with smoked paprika then drizzled over pork tenderloin.
If you are vegetarian just switch the chicken stock for vegetable stock. If you want it thicker just add less stock or cook it for a little longer.
