This is so savory and warming. It's not too spicy for kids. I made mine in a crockpot and let it simmer for a few hours so when my Hubby and son got home, they could have food. The software made me choose the weight of the sazon seasoning, but it's just two packets. It will come in a box. The Sofrito is a foil pouch of a tomato paste type sauce. You can make your own if you search for it. I hope you enjoy as much as me and my husband did.
