Sofrita


Ingredients Directions

Grind these ingredients in your blender or food processorand freeze in plastic containers about the size of a large sour cream container. Use according to your own taste but it's delicious in mostly anything that is stewed!

You can find frozen sofrito or in a jar (Goya brand) in supermarkets. Buy the one that is green, not red, and use more than what the label says. Of course it's nothing like homemade!


* Recao = Puerto Rican coriander, ngo gai in Asian markets or shadow benny in Caribbean markets. If you can't get this, add another bunch of cilantro.

Sweet chili peppers = ajicitos dulces, capsicum chinense. It's very hard to find but if you can't, I can send you some seeds so you can plant them.
