I've made this twice now. The first time, I used store bought safrito. The second time, I made my own, using the same spices on the sofrito ingredients list. Tomato paste, onion, coriander, onion powder, paprika, garlic powder, oregano, pepper. The first time, I didn't like the occasional big bites of sweet raisins so the next time, I added very few. Then I found myself missing the sweet. Next time, I'll add a few more raisins (but still not as much as the recipe calls for) but chop them finely. First time I served it in warm corn tortillas. Liked that. Second time with coconut rice. It was great both ways but the flavors over power the coconut flavor. I think using the coconut milk is a waste of fat and calories for this reason. Good recipe. We love green olives around here!
