sazón ingredients


This is the foundation to many Dominican and other Caribbean dishes with flavors that pop!  You can use immediately, refrigerate after use, or you can freeze your sazón sofrito for later use. We call it sazón sofrito because there are many Dominicans who call this seasoning sazón and others call it sofrito, so we combined both words for this recipe.
