Food Facts

Sofrito is a staple in all Puerto Rican kitchens. There are as many ways to prepare this multi-purpose condiment as there are cooks on the island nation!

Creative Leftovers

Sofrito can be purchased ready-made in stores that sell Hispanic groceries. Omit onions, garlic and annato. Pour KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing into skillet, add jarred sofrito and top with chicken breasts. Continue as directed.

Safe Food Handling

Never allow cooked chicken to sit at room temperature for more than 2 hours. If it is not eaten immediately, cooked chicken should be kept hot or refrigerated.
