Patacones and hogao

Hogao, also known as criollo sauce, is a variant of Spanish sofrito and is typically used in Colombian cuisine. It is made with round onions, long green onions, tomatoes, garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper that are sauteed during the cooking process. It is used for meats, arepas, rice, and other dishes, and can complement the famous bandeja paisa. The recipe varies from region to region. Its name comes from the old use of the verbs ahogar and rehogar that reference a slow cooking technique. Goya Foods sells bottled hogao commercially, in the United States.
