On Sunday night someone posted a photo on Taco Bell's Facebook page
showing a Taco Bell employee in California LICKING a giant stack of taco shells. Yesterday, Taco Bell responded, saying they believe it was a prank and the shells weren't served to customers... but they'll take, quote, "swift action" against the people involved.  Now, this will never sway me from enjoying delicious Taco Bell stuff, and while we're at it, how awesome is their Fire Sauce? Here's how to make your own:


1 6-ounce can tomato paste
3 cups water
3 tablespoons vinegar
3 tablespoons finely minced canned jalapeno slices
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
dash garlic powder

1. Combine the tomato paste with the water in a medium saucepan
and whisk until smooth.
2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
3. Heat mixture over medium high heat until it begins to boil.
Continue to cook for about 3 minutes, stirring often. Remove from
4. When sauce has cooled, poured it into a sealed container and
