Add the garlic, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, oregano, thyme and salt. Cook 1 minute, stirring, then add the pureed tomato. Cover, increase heat and bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium and let simmer, without the lid, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
NOTE: The sauce should simmer without spitting, reduce heat slightly, if needed.
