Notes

Sofrito is a staple in Latin dishes to add flavor and depth. I got this recipe from a great friend about a year ago and fell in love with it. I use it in just about everything.

Use sofrito as the first dish ingredient by adding it to a hot pan with olive oil. Sauté it for a minute or two before adding remaining ingredients. I've also used it as a rub for meat and chicken.

Enjoy!
