By now you’ve probably heard (and may be looking for an alternative adobo recipe and a little homemade sazon): Goya’s CEO Robert Unanue received backlash after praising former President Trump, leading to calls to boycott the company (see trending hashtag #goyaway). While many of us are still scratching our heads as to why he felt the need to announce his love publicly, some Goya consumers have been throwing away products or trying to find alternatives.
While there are alternatives in the supermarket, an idea came to me: What did our grandparents or our great-grandparents use before Goya’s Sazón? I flipped through a few vintage Puerto Rican and Cuban cookbooks and after endless YouTube videos and sorting through recipes, I found my perfect adobo recipe and sazón blend.
