Green tomalitos

Sofrito Chicken is a taco bar favorite when we cater for weddings and corporate luncheons.  To experience the best flavor, slow cook the chicken thighs overnight in a sofrito sauce, which is a mixture of green tomalitos, bell peppers, garlic, and onions.  Add the chicken to a soft, warm corn/flour tortilla and fresh toppings of choice.  This is a finger-licking-good taco!
