MSG-Free Soy-Free Sazon Recipe

Updated on October 4, 2014
5 stars from 1 rating of Sazon Seasoning

Although she was Filipino and Irish, my grandma loved to cook authentic recipes from all over the world.She had so many friends from all different nationalities who infused their own touch in each dish from their respective culture; they even taught her little techniques which made a big difference in the final taste of the dish. People raved about her cooking and asked for the recipes, which she gave without hesitation; she didn't worry about someone topping her recipes...because she didn't cook them for that reason. She cooked them with love and to keep her family healthy. Whenever possible, she used fresh herbs instead of dried. She also had a great passion for fresh garlic, a powerful immune system booster. Combined with oregano, the powerful antioxidant ingredients in this homemade sazon are sure to keep your immune system up while making your recipes taste just like what grandma used to make.

One of my favorite things she used to make was the homemade classic black beans recipe on the back of the cans of Goya Black Beans. It made the entire house smell amazing and had your stomach rumbling up until that very first bite. The only problem is, it calls for Sazon packets which are full of MSG, a soy derivative which I am allergic to. To solve this problem, I found this recipe and absolutely loved it! It tasted so good, but a word of warning; this recipe goes very fast. When I make it, I double the recipe to save time and sanity.
