Hi,
It is Aji Dulce -- sweet chili pepper. We don't have these at all here in California but you should have no problem getting them there in Conn.
I believe the other is Culantro leaves. Also called cilantro.
I hope this helps.

Orangeglow, check out your local So. Ca Home Depot Store. During spring I came across a culantro plant in their "herb" section. It was listed as "pasote", which is its Mexican name. Good Luck!

Ah! One more thing, the Albertsons Food Chain in So.CA is curently carrying TONS of Goya products, from adobo,Coco López, sazón to sometimes maltas. Of course those by request.

Hi,
I am in North County. In San Diego there is a restaurant called Andre's. Next to it they have a bodega where you can find many things. They are on Morena Blvd. Check them out and tell me what you think.

Go to antojito.com, you can find the Sofrito, Adobo, Achiote, Pique, everything. You can order on-line and get it in a week.

Check also www.querico.com and www.puertoricoyes.com. Here you can find many products from PR.

Sofrito

4 large green peppers
1 medium size head of garlic
2 medium size tomatoes
2 large onions
6 full stems of cilantro
1 cup water

Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and chop coarsely. Add in the water a small amount at a time. Pour this mixture into jars with a tight fitting lid. keep the "sofrito" mixture in the fridge, it also freezes well. Add this mixture to bean dishes, stews, soups, and anything else you want to spice up.
