Just my 2¢ worth here.... While Puerto Rican Sazón may be a dry, spice/seasoning mixture (a "seasoned salt"); Dominican Sazón (seasoning) is made from fresh vegetables (cilantro, bell peppers, red onion, fresh garlic, oregano, scallions, parsley, coriander, Tabasco, paprika, salt, vinegar and olive oil) sometimes it also contains tomato paste. It is used to season rice, beans, meats, soups and stews, etc.. In other countries of the Caribbean this seasoning mixture is known as "Sofrito," but in the Dominican Republic it is known as "Sazón" (or Dominican Sazón) Although I may disagree with the ingredient amounts and ratios in this recipe (my personal preferences, I think they need to be increased), all the necessary components seem to be listed for Dominican Sazón.

No way! This is NOT sazon! I am from Puerto Rico. Sazon is a dry spice. We use it there all the time. This is Way off. Sorry. (PS- I also hate how people say this is used for mexican foods when its used in other hispanic countries too) Its a little closer to sofrito

Obviously its a different type of sazon. Sazon basically means nothing more than season.. Before goya came around it wasnt really a recipe. The sazon you are looking for is a dry brand name spice mix, like season all or any other brand spice mix. Come people.. you should know better by seeing the fresh ingredients.
