Babydoll is home for a week so I really hope you all forgive me for not posting a Frugal Friday post 😯. I had half the day off and we decided to go to pubs and places we’ve never been and have a beer and appetizer! It was so much fun. We got a little dressed up and went on a date. I tried local beers I’ve never had. We cant wait to do it again!
Tonight, we made freezer meals and homemade sofrito. We go to a Mexican grocery store once in awhile where the produce is beyond inexpensive and they usually have fantastic deals on chicken. I wanted to get a jar of Goya Sofrito and Babydoll was like “my mom makes it herself.” So here you go.
1 bunch fresh cilantro
1 bulb of garlic
3 small green bell peppers
2 large white onions
1/2 extra virgin olive oil or more if needed
Blend together until smooth. This is ideal as a flavor boost for alot of Spanish dishes such as rice, soups, stews, beans, and Puerto Rican dishes such Pernil and Pork Shoulder.
The smell and freshness of this sofrito is O.M.G.! Nothing like you get in the jar and the color is incredible. It’s like a light lime green versus the dark pea green in the jar. We filled a quart jar and had some leftover about 3 cups for the freezer. Another way to store sofrito is in an ice cube tray. It’s a baby food consistency not chunky.
