The Adobo is an all purpose spice blend that is used in many Latin American recipes. This is the version I created for day to day use. There are many different versions out there and the level of spiciness may vary depending on the region.
I like to keep my Adobo low heat and I make it with no salt. That way I can customize the dish as needed. This recipe is perfect for chicken, pork, sauces, beans and many classic Latin recipes.
- Mason Jars
- 4 tbsp garlic powder
- 5 tbsp onion powder

- 2 tbsp dried parsley pulse a couple times to make it finer
- 1 tbsp dried Mexican Oregano
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Combine all ingrediens together. Add to seasoning jar, label and date it.
- Goodness in/Goodness out – use good quality spices for best flavor. I like to buy bulk spices at Costco. They have good quality and organic options.
- I usually make it enough for a month or so. Fresh is best.
- This makes a great gift idea. Pack it in small containers with a spoon. Your friends will love this personal gift. (make sure to label with ingredient statement or refer them with a link to this blog post).
