If you need a sauce base for your cooking, a Sofrito is the way to go. Sofrito is a Puerto Rican sauce that is a combination of cilantro, garlic, onions and a variety of peppers. It’s a base for many recipes and it tastes amazing! I will be using this all the time now!

After cleaning and de-seeding the peppers, put everything in your blender. You might have to do it in batches depending on the size of your blender. It can be refrigerated for up to two weeks or it can be frozen.
