The Secret of Sofrito

Prepare this today for a quick dinner tomorrow!

This is the finished product:


I’m not a Chef or anywhere near it! However, being home I started to learn how to cook a little more. I started to make rice from scratch, (but now have the rice maker) home made mashed potatoes, beans, steak, pork chops etc.

Every time we would go to my sister-in-laws mother ‘s house she made this amazing yellow rice with black beans and it had the special ingredient of sofrito! I use to use sofrito, but the Goya can- I know! Yuck!

I was finally given the recipe for sofrito and hopefully I don’t get killed for it!

Get that blender ready!!

-Water and oil
-Peppers both green and red
-Sweet peppers
-Cilantro (wash and cut the roots a bit)
-Garlic (do not use powder!)
-1 Sazon packet

I was told no measurements! Just put in as much as you want. What I did was put some water, little oil and a couple pinches of salt first. Then I start putting everything else little by little. I put maybe a quarter of the onion in and mix it in the blender then add the other ingredients one by one and blend.

If you need to add more taste of salt add the Adobo not salt.

When that’s all done put it in a container and place it in the freezer.

When you make your yellow rice for the next day add the sofrito as much as you want or a BIG spoon of it in and an extra packet of sazon.

If you want to add beans:
-If I only make a cup of rice then I will put about a cup and a half of water since the beans adds more substance.

-I use black beans and wash them well and add them to the rice in the cooker.
-Add the sofrito.
– I also put in small bits of steak ham! You don’t need to cook the steak ham, since it’s already cooked.

Voila done!

Now to add some meat into the meal. When I have absolutely no time or am just lazy I’ll get out the seasoned pork tenderloin from Stop & Shop; Extra Lean Pork Tenderloin Apple Bourbon. It’s delicious and I get different types like the honey mustard or teriyaki one and stick it into the oven.

These are some of the ingredients and food I spoke about:
Sazon and Adobo


The sofrito when it’s done! Doesn’t have to be exact color.
