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!

I wanted to make another RecipeZaar recipe that called for adobo, and since I don't have any, was PLEASED to find this recipe. I made it using the first six ingredients (only half the salt) plus 3 TBSP chili powder since I didn't have achiote, zest or saffron on hand. A great combination of flavors and works well in the awesome recipezaar recipe called "Chicken Carne Asada." Thank you for saving me a trip to the market, and for a "keeper" recipe.

More peppery than my usual ready made brand – a good thing! Scaling the recipe down to ¼ cup and reducing the salt even more, I added some cumin, achiote and a pinch of dried orange zest. I can see this blend replacing a lot of my others – it tastes wonderful! Thanks for sharing!

I usually buy Goya adobo seasoning, but no more! This is so much better. I used the full amount of salt, and I added the cumin and dried lime zest. My tastebuds are still singing. This might be my new go-to blend.

I can't say enough good things about this recipe. I've tweaked it a little to suit our own tastes, but what a great place to start! It's the new House Seasoning in our house.

Ain't nothin' like a dash of sass so I did a little fingertip dip and now I've got sass-mouth. Made for Alphabet Soup Tag.

I didn't make this recipe but I used as a template for a recipe that called for adobo seasoning. It really made the roast taste wonderful. YUM. I just added components that I wanted to the total recipe, mainly garlic powder, pepper, mexican oregano, cumin and a bit of saffron. Excellent.

Made for ZWT5. This is quite good although not what I am used to. I did make the first set of ingredients plus the cumin and the orange zest. I used this on chicken for the grill and I did like the orange flavors hinting in the background. Thank you.
