“I do not like spicy hot foods very much so most people will find this to be a very mild chili. Sazon Goya - Con Azafran is a spice mix (not hot at all) that you can find in the Mexican section of the supermarket. Several small envelopes are in a small box. I add it to most soup and stew type recipes. It adds a reddish yellow color and a good flavor. Abobo seasoning is also in the Mexican section. It is mostly salt so I use it instead of salt to add a little flavor.”
