What is sazón? Let's start with what it's not . It's not catsup. It's not salsa. It's not a sauce.

Just wait until you try Homemade Sazón on Champion Chicken ! (And with a name like that, you know there's a story. Hint hint: think World Series baseball.) Real Food, Made from Scratch. Great for Meal Prep. Easy DIY. A New Addition to The Homemade Pantry , a Kitchen Parade Specialty. Low Carb. Low Fat. Not just vegan, Vegan Done Real . Naturally Gluten Free.
