    @Fishtrippin You use sofrito for red rice and beans, puerto rican soups, and you can make baked eggs with sofrito. (basically put sofrito in a ramekin or pan, crack eggs on top and bake it.) It is a flavoring you can use with anything.

    PS: If you can find the ingredients adding culantro, ajíce and pork will make a very authentic sofrito...but you can't get those in most places in the world.

    Thanks! Like most other things that come in cans , Canned Sofrito is not Sofrito.

    I usually use annatto powder bought at the latin market, so I guess that would be ground seeds?

    Is that annatto seed, paste, ground or oil?
