    Check rice during stirring, if mixture I too tight, add stock nd butter, 1 cup, and 2 pats at a time until it loosens to the consistency you like. Serve in deep bowls with lime wedges. NOTE: Look for sofrito and sazon in the ethnic section of your market, I have a friend that makes mine, Also use just mere shavins of scoth bonnet peppers, and wear gloves when handling because they are HOT, HOT, HOT !!!!!
