This is a paste I use mostly for making Spanish rice, but you may find other dishes to use it in as well. Store in the refrigerator.

Awesome! Use this in any recipe that calls for sautéing a bit of onion and/or garlic. It adds a new dimension to any dish. I froze most of it in silicone mini muffin moulds. Once frozen, just pop them in a resealable bag to grab when you need them. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

My mom used to make home made sofrito all the time and this tasted almost like hers. (I did not use cilantro because I did not have any and I was in a pinch) but other than that the flavor and the smell was really good. Read More
