Every time I see recipes for moro I cringe just a little. My mother's moro, which she learned from her mother, is the one I make. But it seems most people don't make moro like that. They add a kitchen sinkful of seasonings that just don't belong. Whenever I taste moro from other kitchens I always think they taste mostly terrible. I can taste all the unbearable sofrito/sazón and I just can't even finish them. And hey, people frequently tell my mother she makes the best moro and request it/coyly mention how much they love it when they're visiting, so it's not just us being used to it.
