Help with a substitute!

Help! I misread my recipe and it asked for 4 cans (10.75 oz.) of tomatoe purée and I added 4 cans of paste. How can I fix it?

You'll be fine. What are you trying to make? What's your recipe?

Some chicken broth, some water, what are you making? The tomato flavor will be pretty intense with paste, maybe some crushed or stewed toms.

Try broth, Rotel, water, liquid from beans if you use them, Low Sodium V-8 or tomato juice. Paste is just concentrated tomatoes. With chili, you just mess around with it until you get the taste you want.

Just add water to make up the difference in volume between the paste and the puree.
