Recaito (Puerto Rican Sofrito)

Prep time 20 minutes              Makes approximately 2-3 cups


The magical aromatic raw vegetable/herb blend that kicks off many a wonderful Latin American dish!



3 cups Spanish onion, large dice

1/3 cup garlic, minced

2 green peppers, seeded, large dice

1 red pepper, seeded, large dice

2 cubanelle peppers, seeded, large dice

6 aji dulce peppers, found in Latin groceries, seeded, quartered

Nice handful of cilantro

Nice handful of culantro (a.k.a. recao), found in Latin groceries




To make recaito, pulse onions in a food processor until fine and uniform. Transfer to a bowl. Process the remaining sofrito ingredients similarly, in batches, given the size of your food processor. Add to bowl and mix thoroughly. Use a portion immediately and freeze the remainder for future use in 1 cup or ½ cup containers.
