Pixelsicle 2

"I received this recipe from my mother in law who resides in Garrochales, PR. It isn't nearly as complicated as other recipes I have seen and is just as delicious. I recommend freezing these in ice trays, then storing in freezer bags and frozen to have on hand. You can double, triple or quadruple, etc as needed. This recipe lasts me about 2 months."

Worked great for me, ended up using it in both arroz con pollo and black beans, very tasty. BTW, you don't cook Sofrito until you are ready to put it into a dish.

Excellent base...I rocks this in beans as well as sauce. Tricked it out with fresh cilantro

This was THE BEST sofrito recipe! Sometimes I add red tomatoes and use less peppers or add some cilantro. Yummy on soups, beans and meats.

There is no cooking involved. No combining of the ingredients through heat. This is more of a cold salsa recipe. Not impressed.
