This is one of the first things I learned to make. It is used in almost every dish and is a household must-have in the Dominican Republic[. There are versions sold in the specialty markets, but I prefer to use fresh ingredients and it keeps well in the refrigerator. Many Dominican dishes call for this sazon and you can either make it in bulk or just enough for your dish. I promise you, there is no greater smell than this sazon when it hits hot oil!]

Total Time:
10 min

This is just how my departed friend from Puerto Rico made this. Awesome on pork butt a chicken wings. I believe he put the dry sazon seasoning on the proteins also. item not reviewed by moderator and published
