Dry Adobo Seasoning (Adobo Seco)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by cookiedog

I'm posting this because my mom found a recipe for enchiladas on this site and could not find adobo seasoning in the market. She found a jar of adobo similar to mole but it would have turned her enchiladas verdes into enchiladas negros. This is a seasoning mix I found on the web from The Daisy Cooks show on PBS.

I used all the ingredients listed and tried this on both scrambled egg and slices of tofu! For the tofu I mixed in a little bit of flour and dredged the slices in that. Used cumin seed for ground and whirled all the ingredients in a clean coffee mill. I can see using this spice/herb mix for many different things, including salad dressing, meat loaf, steamed veggies. If I were to find any fault with the recipe it would be that there is an excessive amount of salt. I only used a fraction of salt in the 1/2 cup amount of seasoning I prepared. Thanks!
