      I used the Badia brand of Sazon seasoning (without the msg) and since the sazon is seasoned salt, left out the extra salt and it turned out fine to me. Not in the mood to dirty my hands so I just made drop cornbread with two spoons and they fried up wonderfully. Served with fried chicken - a great meal with Puerto Rican flavor!!
