I don't have a local suggestion, but I get mine on Amazon. Three 12oz. jars for $12. Free shipping, and it saves you the time and energy of driving around town looking for it.

Ok, another staple of puertorican cuisine is sofrito.
I usually make it myself. It lasts about a month for just 1-2 people. Here it cost about 2 dollars to buy a 14oz jar, but you can make your own. This will make basically any dish more flavorful, its AMAZING. We use it to make stews, beans, sauces.

  • 2 medium green peppers, seeds removed(try to get this on sale)
  • 1 red sweet pepper, seeds removed(you can always buy fresh or canned.)
  • 2 large tomatoes(fresh, buy it on sale)
  • 2 medium onions, peeled
  • 1 head of garlic, peeled
  • 1 bunch cilantro leaves(you can use(about 1/2 of a cup or 2 small stalks)
  • 1/2 bunch parsley leaves(optional)
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil

    Cut everything up, put into a blender or food processor, let it run on high until its diced enough or pureed. Put it in a disposable container and refrigerate. Can last up to a month or better yet, freeze it, if it can be into small cubes even better.

    For Puerto Rican Beans:

  • 1 - 15oz cans of beans(white/pink/red or kidney beans)
  • 1 -tablespoon of sofrito
  • 1/3 of green pepper or canned red pepper
  • 1 - small yellow onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 6oz or 3/4 of tomato sauce
  • 1 - chicken, beef or ham bullion cube
  • 1 peeled russet potato(or similar) cut into large cubes (about 8-12oz)
  • 1/2 packet of sazon you can find sazon and boullion examples here
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • salt and pepper to taste

    Put onions, peppers and garlic first with the oil and water, heat on med-high for 5-7 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients, put it on medium and cook for 25 minutes constantly stirring. after that, put it over rice and enjoy.
    I sometimes like to add an egg to get some extra protein in there and if i want more to save for later, i put 2 cans of beans and add about an extra 1/2 of each ingredient listed above. All of this cost me here about 10-13 bucks and that amount of beans will last me for a week. It seems like work but its not, its easy and fast. After a while youll remember the entire process and do it by heart.

    If you choose not to make sofrito you can always buy it Goya brand.

    Dont be afraid to buy some of these online, At least I have when the deals are too good to pass.
