Helpful hints

  • This recipe is higher in potassium, but it is a one-dish meal, which would be an acceptable amount of potassium. If you are on a lower potassium diet, omit the tomato sauce.
  • Homemade Sazon use equal parts garlic powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, ground annatto (or turmeric), and ground oregano. This recipe would be 1/4 teaspoon each. Keep a mixture on hand to use in other recipes. Store bought Sazon is higher in sodium.
  • Make a batch of DaVita’s Adobo seasoning to also keep on hand for other recipes. This recipe already contains salt in the ingredients, so omit for this recipe when making adobo seasoning.
  • Boiling potatoes reduces potassium content by 50-75%. You may also double boil them to reduce potassium a bit more.
