Tips / Suggestions

  • If you enjoy spice you can get the hot cachucha. 
  • You can choose to use avocado oil or coconut oil as well. 
  • You can use the ice cube trays to freeze sofrito for immediate use. 
  • You do not have to use an entire tablespoon of oil. The oil adds moisture and also helps with preservation.
  • All of the vegetables can be found in a bodega (Latino Supermarket).
