I'm always so happy to be the first to review a recipe, particularly when I can rate it highly. I'm not very familiar or experienced with Tex-Mex or Mexican cooking and the seasonings used, but I do know what I like. Going over the list of herbs and spices, hauling them out of the cabinet one by one, and then mixing them up all told me I was going to like this. The aroma was really wonderful, and it just looked, well, GOOD. My intention was to season some shrimp with this tomorrow but I was too curious to wait that long. I seasoned up a hamburger with this wonderful stuff and grilled it for lunch. It took the boring ol' hamburger and made it something truly special. Even tho' I'm not sure exactly what "Adobo" means or what it's used for, I still know that I can't wait to try this on other meats, chicken, rice, roasted potatoes or for marinades . As I started to make this I could have kicked myself because I had intended to make only half a recipe to start, to see if I liked it, but then realized I was dumping the full amounts into the mixing bowl. As it turned out my happy accident saved me the trouble of having to haul out all those spices again to make a second batch! Nice recipe, Traci. You got the combination and balance just right!
We love the taste of adobo peppers in sauce so in order to get the smokey taste we use smoked paprika. It makes all the difference. Infact we'd use smoke paprika instead of regular. It's a staple in our household.
Fabulous combination herbs and spices to create a wonderfully flavorful seasoning blend- everything in just the right proportion! Definitely something I would mix up keep on hand in a little tupperware container for future use. Worked great as a rub for grilled chicken! Thanks for a great recipe!
Hello Foodies!.. I am the submitter of this recipe and I want to say thanks to all of you who have tried my "Adobo Seasoning" A few of you have mentioned the high amount of salt. Yes the first ingredient in this is salt; this is what I found to be true in the the pre-packaged Adobo Seasonings I found in stores. I omitted the additives/preservatives, anti-caking ingredients and MSG and found the simple ingredients were all we needed! If you are sensitive to salt flavor or just can't have as much salt simply adjust the amount to your liking! Thanks again and "happy cooking" :)
Had no clue what Adobo seasoning was but its truly delicious. I had everything to mix it up and reading past reviews decided to make the whole batch instead of only half like I was going to. I used this in the Sunday Chicken Dinner by Christina from this site instead of the cajun seasoning the recipe called for. Fantastic!!!!
Ok so I've never had or made adobo seasoning before but when I saw that I had everything for this I thought I'd give it a try...I am sooooo glad I did! This is wonderful and I can think of a million and 1 things to use it on. I made this exactly as written and put it into an extra salt shaker that I had and right next to my salt & pepper shakers it went...I have a feeling that I'm gonna be using this A LOT lol! Thanks Traci for this wonderful flavorful spice blend!:)
I have never had pre made adobo seasoning so I can't say how this compares to those but I can say this is fantastic! I made it for a coleslaw recipe(the "Pittsburgh Sandwich" recipe from this site) and it was the best coleslaw I have ever had. Then I tried it on roasted asparagus and it was amazing. Then I took another reviewers idea and put it on popcorn. Also amazing. I made a half batch this time but will double the recipe next time I make it. Which won't be long at the rate I'm going through this stuff! I did cut back on salt a bit per other reviewers but left every thing else as written.
