This past Saturday I attended The Mamas Expo at the NY Hall of Science in Queens. I had a really awesome time! One of the vendors at the expo was Chulita’s Famous. I immediately gravitated towards their table. The Latina in me could smell the sofrito from afar! Gloribell Taveras, one of the co-founders was there and she was super friendly!
I got samples of the Sofrito con Spices and Sofrito Verde. I’m so excited I finally got to test one of them out today!
Grilled Chicken with Sofrito Verde:
*Cut up 2 pieces of skinless,bonesless, chicken breasts into small chunks.
* I added one good spoonful of the Sofrito Verde
(It is very potent, so a little goes a long way! )
*I let it marinate over night
*Heated a non stick pan to medium temperature and added a little bit of olive oil
*Threw in the chicken and added a little pepper
*Cooked the chicken until it was golden brown
The chicken came out delicious!
I made rice with some habichuela’s on the side as well.
My mom loved it!
Mind you…I DO NOT..I repeat..I DO NOT enjoy to cook for the most part..
However,I am very excited to test out the Sofrito con Spices!
So keep an eye out for another food post soon! =)
*GRACIAS CHULITA’S FAMOUS*
