“Another recipe from Ingrid Hoffman's Latin kitchen. She keeps this in her fridge to always be ready to add a little something extra to recipes such as: chicken, beef, pork, potatoes, beans and lentils. You can also use it as a base for soups. It will keep for up to a week in an airtight container in your refrigerator - or you can freeze it in an ice cube tray and use the cubes like bouillon! *For a spicy sofrito, add a chopped jalapeno!”
