This recipe is from, posted for another Zaarian who was looking for a Sazon recipe. From the reviews, looks like it's not really the Sazon everyone was looking for. Sorry about that :)

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.
