Tomato Cumin Sauce

1/2 cup minced yellow onion

1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 (8-ounce) cans tomato sauce

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 teaspoons ground cumin

Salt, to taste

White pepper, to taste

Sugar, to taste

1/4 cup sour cream (optional)

In a saucepan, over medium heat, saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil until the onions are softened and transparent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce, chili powder and cumin and simmer gently, covered, for about 15 minutes, to allow the flavors to develop and merge. Adjust the seasonings, adding salt, white pepper and sugar, to taste. For a creamier sauce, stir in the sour cream and gently reheat to serve.

Serve with grilled scallops or chicken, atop pasta or even on a Southwest-style pizza.

Makes about 3 1/4 cups of sauce, enough for 6 servings.
