Adobo Seasoning and uses:
Adobo is the immersion of raw food in a stock (or sauce) comprised variously of paprika, oregano, salt, garlic, and vinegar to preserve and enhance its flavor. A Latino spice mixture used in various countries including Mexico. A typical "purchased" mixture may include garlic, onion, Tellicherry black pepper, Mexican oregano, cumin and cayenne red pepper ("rural style" contains no-salt, "city style blend" contains salt.) Use to sprinkle on fried eggs and as a rub on meats prior to grilling or frying or use in taco meat mixtures. Add 1/2 teaspoon per pound for chicken, beef, pork chops, ribs or cutlets, burritos, or use some to spice up a salsa and guacamole.
