Yaniqueques (Dominican Johny Cakes)

Yaniqueques (Dominican Johny Cakes) by Yolanda Fernandez

Don't buy Goya. Make your own dry sazon for Latin American cooking. This recipe contains no msg, is super easy to make, and is used to prepare meats, poultry, beans, soups, stews, etc. Annato powder (achiote) adds a beautiful color to dishes, such as rice.

cowboy guasacaca

cowboy guasacaca by Chez la mere
