Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Just curious, why do people ask if you can use one ingredient instead of another. OF COURSE YOU CAN !! If you are making the recipe you can use whatever you want in it. It may change the taste, but that's what happens when you change the ingredient. Also, it is helpful to re-read the recipe before you ask a question that is fully explained in the recipe. Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest. Have a great day and happy cooking )

Is frozen seasoning blend sofrito or recaito? That is all I have found that would come close?

Frozen seasoning blend is a mix of chopped onions, celery, green & red peppers and parsley flakes. You can find it in the freezer section near the vegetables. Enjoy!

Instead of using pork ham, would turkey ham due? Or some other turkey product?

Seasoning blend is a mixture of chopped onions, green bellpeppers, and celery found with the other frozen veggies.

This was at the beginning of the recipe: You won't waste time chopping veggies for this dish. We use a frozen seasoning blend that contains chopped onions, celery, green and red bell peppers, and parsley. Hassle-free!
