I must admit, I had to do a double-take when I first saw the name of this seasoning. I thought adobe was something used to make houses in certain areas of the world. Then I looked again: A-D-O-B-O

This seasoning is used in Latin American and Caribbean cooking, and is derived from the Spanish term, “adobar,” which means to marinate. In older times this concoction was used to preserve meats, but now it’s turned into an everyday household spice.

If you note the ingredients, you probably have all these individual seasonings in your spice rack: Salt, Granulated Garlic, Oregano, Black Pepper, Tumeric, Onion Powder. If you don’t want to try to figure out how much of each, then we recommend just buying the spice ready-made.

You can use this product as a rub on chicken or fish, and some have even created a wet rub. If you want more flavor for your soups and stews, Adobo seasoning is an excellent choice. And yes, at Startdust Tea and Spice, we have the wonderful Adobo Seasoning for your enjoyment.
