    Como receta basica para alguien que no tenga expericencia en la cocina puertorriqueña está bien. El sofrito es la base principal de sabor para nuestros platos criollos, por lo tanto muchos le agregamos otros ingredientes como oregano, comino, laurel y hay quienes le añaden sazón con color y cubitos de caldo de pollo. Aun cuando no se lo agrego al prepararlo, cuando lo echo a sorfreir en aceite siempre agrego un tallo de "celery" picado en trocitos. Dicen que cocino super sabroso y creo que se debe al sofrito. Prueben hacerlo asi y me dejan saber. REC

    Personalmente el oregano lo pondria opcional, por tener un sabor fuerte y muy peculiar. Pimiento (bell pepper) rojo, he encontrado que al añadirlo queda muy bien.
