    Please what is goya con azafran?

    Hi Jan, it's a spice, you can do the following as a substitute:

    3 tablespoons of garlic powder or granulated garlic
    2  tablespoons of salt
    2 tsp of freshly ground black pepper
    1 tsp of dried Mexican oregano
    1/2 tsp of turmeric powder
    and a pinch of cumin

    Good luck.
