Homemade Sazon Recipe

What do I make with Sazon? I always season my wings with it, I use it on my grilled chicken wings, in Mom’s Chicken and Rice, Sofrito Chicken Stew, Chicken and Lentil Soup and many more dishes! Tomorrow I will share one of my daughter’s favorite dishes with this spice.

Sazon is like the magic spice blend in many of my Latin dishes. I often find this in the supermarket in small envelopes that you add to stews, beans, rice, etc. It gives yellow rice that yellow color and basically makes anything taste good! While Goya is the most popular brand, but I stopped buying it years ago when I realized it had MSG. Alternatively, I started using Badia Sazon, but it’s not easy to find. Now I just make my own which I keep stored in a small spice jar. So instead of using a packet of sazon, I use one and a half teaspoons of this in its’ place.

The key ingredient in this spice mix is ground annatto (achiote), the spice that gives yellow rice that yellow color. Annatto is comes from the seeds of achiote tree. In India, it’s referred to as sindoor, and in the Philippines, it is called atsuete. I can find it in hispanic markets, but you can also find it on Amazon. If you can’t find this, turmeric would be a good substitute.
