How to use

Healthy Rican Sofrito

Sofrito is a base to add flavor to various Latin foods and dishes. However, it's so versatile, it can be used as a dry rub to marinate meats, and added in soups and stews. It also makes a great dressing and marinade when hydrated in water and/or olive oil. Our dehydrated version is great to have on hand for it's convenience and long shelf life. 

How to make Sofrito Magic: 

In a small bowl, mix together the sofrito and water, and prepare to be amazed. Wait a few minutes before using the sofrito in your meals. Once the water has been completely absorbed, the sofrito is ready for use. Typically sofrito is stir fried before using in foods like yellow rice, beans and stews. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Simple Yellow Rice with Beans


Sofrito Ingredients


  1. In a medium pot, on high heat, stir fry the hydrated sofrito in the oil until it releases it's aroma (just a few seconds). 
  2. Quickly add the sazón, rice, beans, and broth. Mix well. The liquid should be 1/4" above the rice. 
  3. Add the salt, or adobo. Taste the liquid to make sure you like the taste and it has enough salt to your liking. Add any additional spices to taste. 
  4. Allow the liquid to come to a boil, and once it slightly disappears, reduce the heat to low. 
  5. Stir once or twice from the bottom up to make sure the rice cooks evenly. 
  6. Cover and allow to cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the rice is soft and sticky. 

P.S. This is just a simple way to cook rice and beans. Other ingredients may be added as well like; ham, diced onions and peppers, chopped cilantro, veggies and more. The possibilities are endless, and this is just a start.
