I know exactly where she is coming from!!!! 99% of my coworkers are from Spanish speaking countries. And erreum. I ask them all the Don’t be Jealous because this black queen still looks this good in her Sixties shirt about their recipes!!! My Spanish rice taste so good one time they were questioning if I actually made it and compared it to this Mexican family owned business in California. So I feel u Aunt Boo!!! I’m black hisp too. That sofrito is ok but u need to make it from scratch onion garlic green pepper small red yellow bell pepper cilantro and this is where the magic happen when you put recao put it all in a grinder and then use it for rice. So interesting. All my life I’ve checked off the “white” box and just yesterday at a medical office where they were collecting the data “because the state requires it”, I decided I’m tired of this country defining everything by our differences. So for the first time ever I checked the box that indicated I was refusing to answer the question.
