How to Use Sazon Seasoning?

Contrary to what you’re thinking, Sazon is definitely not spicy. Although, it has a bit of heat, but it’s not spicy. Rest assure, you can perfectly season your dish with this mixture (And don’t worry, it’s still good enough for your kids to enjoy).

With all the ingredients mixed together, the taste profile results in an earthier taste profile with a bit of heat which makes it a dynamic flavourful mixture.

There are a lot of dishes you can use your homemade sazon seasoning. Some of the dishes that clicks real well with this seasoning are:

Yeah-uh, you guessed it right. This homemade seasoning goes really well with Mexican dishes. Just use 2 teaspoons of seasoning in recipes that call for one packet of sazon seasoning.

You can even store this mix in a small plastic or glass jar with lid, in a cool dry place. However, make sure that you mark it with a sharpie so that you know what it is (before it gets lost it your spice rack).
