Smoked Paprika Tomato Sauce✨🌶🍅

Last week I had honey grow for lunch (couldn’t tell you the last time I had it, probably sometime during college). I forgot how yummy it was! I got the “Vegan AF”, by no means am I vegan. I am actually far from it lol. My friends joke and call me a carnivore because I am someone who never feels full unless there is some sort of meat in the meal! Anyways, the “vegan af” had this AMAZING smoked paprika tomato sauce which is definitely a waaay healthier option then all the different glazes they offer. It was so good I was determined to re-create the sauce for dinner this week! So here ya have it! I have re-created the smoked paprika sauce and topped it on some easy baked chicken with zoodles/coodles (carrot noodles lol)! Spice up your chicken with this new YUMMY sauce! You won’t regret it 😉
