“An organic revolution is simmering.”

This line caught my attention when I received Simply Organic’s new simmer sauces. It’s printed on the product insert.

Nowadays, cooking is a real challenge for many of us busy professionals, not because we don’t enjoy it, but because we simply don’t have the time to spend in the kitchen. But what if you could whip up a meal within 15 minutes for your entire family, and it’s guaranteed to be tasty and healthy? That’s much easier to manage, right?

How can you do that? A good pre-made sauce does the trick. With that on hand, all you need to do, literally, is to throw fresh ingredients and the sauce together and cook. Because the sauce is already deeply flavored, you don’t have to add any other seasonings, which can make a two-ingredient dinner for your family taste fantastic. And THAT is revolutionary, in my opinion.

This year, Simply Organic came up with not one, but four such sauces. All the simmer sauces are made with organic ingredients and are gluten-free.

Here are the flavors:

  • Classic Fajita Simmer Sauce (for beef or chicken)
  • Mild Taco Simmer Sauce (for chicken)
  • Red Enchilada Simmer Sauce
  • Southwest Taco Simmer Sauce (for beef)

For the past couple of weeks, I had fun trying them all with whatever ingredients I already had in my fridge. I have to admit that having those sauces in my kitchen made cooking easy-breezy.

One night after work, I followed the recipe on the Classic Fajita Simmer Sauce packet. It called for only four ingredients: beef strips, onions, bell peppers, and a pouch of the fajita sauce. I literally tossed them all in the sauce. 15 minutes later, my fajita was on the table. It was incredible.

For the Mild Taco Simmer Sauce, I did something a bit differently. I soaked a salmon fillet in the sauce, baked it at 375°F for 15 minutes and served it with some homemade pico. That was an amazing dinner with only two ingredients for the entree!

Putting together some legit southwest tacos can’t get any easier than with the Southwest Taco Simmer Sauce. I simmered ground beef in the sauce as recommended on the sauce packet. To assemble the tacos, I wrapped the beef filling with warmed tortillas, pico and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Yum!

By then, my creative genes were fully activated. This easy Shakshuka recipe idea came into my mind when I was reading the ingredient list on the back of the Red Enchilada Simmer Sauce packet: organic tomatoes, organic tomato paste, organic ancho chili pepper, organic garlic, organic cocoa powder, organic smoked paprika, organic cumin, organic cayenne pepper, organic salt, and pepper, etc.

If I were to make a shakshuka from scratch, those were the exact ingredients I would want to use. Well, with the pre-made simmer sauce on hand, it helps cut down the number of ingredients required for this recipe from 15+ to only 7. Isn’t that wonderful?

Shakshuka Recipe with Red Enchilada Sauce

To take full advantage of a pouch of the Red Enchilada Simmer Sauce, I made this shakshuka recipe with ground beef, diced onions, bell peppers, and fire-roasted tomatoes. Once those four ingredients are simmering in the sauce, all that’s left to do is to crack a few eggs in the mixture and bake to your desired doneness. Garnish with fresh cilantro and crumbled feta cheese if you like. Done! This super tasty Shakshuka can be ready for your family to enjoy in just 20 minutes. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Hi Sharon when you say middle eastern then at least try to get a bit closer to the topic. There are no spices and you use packed sauce. I do apologise but it is so retarded especially if you already have a blog dedicated to food. Or to make it easier for you just make a new name for this recipe instead of calling it shakshuka.

    1. Hi Diana, thank you for your comment. You made a valid point and it’s well noted. This site is dedicated to food and I have been learning lots from my readers like you. Thanks again!

  2. I really love it when healthy meals can also be really fast and still be made with good ingredients! These packets sound amazing, and I love that the company was so willing to help you out with so many goodies! One quick question…as someone who is very sensitive to hot/spicy foods, are these sauces spicy?

    1. Hello Heather, the level of the spiciness of the simmer sauces is mild. The fajita one is a little hotter than the other three when you taste the sauce alone. I found that the flavor blends in with my food. So nothing turned out too spicy for me. Hope that helps.
