Adobo

Adobo is an all-purpose seasoning and it is a must have for any well stocked spice cabinet. Most folks are of the misunderstanding that Adobo is a Mexican seasoning which should only be used in Mexican dishes ….. NOT SO! It is a Mexican seasoning but it can be used in a variety of dishes. I use it to add flavor to soups, beans, and even in rubs I use to cook chicken, pork, or beef.

You’ll find Adobo in most grocery stores on the International/Mexican Foods isle and oftentimes on the Baking/Salt/Sugar isle with all the other seasonings. The primary ingredients in Adobo are: salt, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, achiote, and other spices. Although it is very inexpensive and sold in bulk, there are recipes to make your own available online.
