Sofritas - it’s only right when there are bold flavors, a meat-y texture, and a high kick of spice. I wanted to recreate Chipotle’s sofritas by using the Anova Precision Cooker. There are recipes out there for this sort of thing, but this recipe really shines when it’s cooked slowly or braised. In this case, I obviously used the sous vide cooking technique. If you’re unsure what the heck sofrito is in this recipe, it’s a blended vegetable base that’s used for dishes like stews and soups. You can find it at a store, or make it yourself. It’s not hard. All you need are: 1 yellow onion, 1 red bell pepper, 1 green bell pepper, 1 garlic head, 1 bunch of cilantro. You can just throw all of that in the blender with everything else, as indicated in step 6. NOTE: This recipe is spicy. For my spicy fans: you’re going to love this dish. Additionally, this recipe has a thicker sauce than what you get from Chipotle (that's how I prefer it). However, if you like this dish thinner with less of a spicy kick, feel free to add a tad more water.
