What is sazon?

Sazon is a seriously well known Puerto Rican spice that can be found it many Mexican and Spanish markets. Regular sazon is a blend of coriander, cumin, achiote, garlic powder, oregano, salt & pepper. The downside of most sazon is that it is made up of MSG, so I adore to make my own with what I ordinarily have on hand (subbing turmeric for annatto seeds/achiote). It tastes incredibly close to the true factor, but with a few of twists!
