Adobo seasoning is a gourmet, all-purpose spice mixture used to flavor and marinate meat, beans, and vegetables. It is an especially popular seasoning in Mexican, Spanish Caribbean and Latin American cuisine.
The word adobo comes from the Spanish word adobar, which means to “marinate” or “pickle”. Before refrigeration, adobo mixtures were used to preserve meat and keep it from spoiling. These days, adobo seasoning powder is used as a rub for grilled and fried meats, such as beef, chicken, pork, and seafood. It is also a flavorful addition to beans, stews, sauces, and vegetarian dishes.
Adobo Powder works magic as a taco or fajita seasoning. Just sprinkle it over your taco or fajita meat prior to cooking to quickly add a burst of Latin flavor.
Our house blend adobo powder is mixed from sugar, garlic, onion, pepper, oregano, coriander, allspice, cinnamon, salt, and cloves.
