Spring Hill Ranch's Sazón Seasoning

Sazón is a traditional Latin-American and Caribbean/West Indian seasoning mix. It is usually available in the Latin section of larger supermarkets, but we don't have any of them here in the puckerbrush of rural New Mexico. 1 1/2 teaspoons of this seasoning is the equivalent of 1 small packet of the commercial stuff. This one, of course, has no MSG in it. If desired, you can even leave out the salt completely and add it if needed in the dish.
Use this and Jo Zimny's adobo seasoning to make Juliann Esquivel's wonderful table salsa, then keep them around to add great seasoning to lots of dishes!
