More About This Recipe

  • To us Puerto Ricans, sofrito is the base and staple ingredient for many of our meals. Its preparation is simple: cilantro, coriander, onion, garlic, bell pepper, and our favorite ingredient: sweet pepper. If you’re in the United States and can’t find this type of pepper, you can use mini sweet peppers. I’ve used them a few times myself. You can make a large batch of sofrito, freeze it and that way you are always ready to cook. Try it!
