"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! Reviewed for ZWT 2009."
"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 â€“ a good thing! Scaling the recipe down to Â¼ 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 â€“ it tastes wonderful! Thanks for sharing!"
"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."
"Very useful, thank you!"
"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."
"I wanted to try another recipe here on zaar but didn't want to run to the store for adobo. My entire family loves this seasoning. It is RARE for everyone to like the same thing. Thanks for a great 'keeper'."
"I made this recipe using the the first 6 ingredients & the optional cumin & saffron. Thanks for sharing! Made for Family Picks ZWT 4"
"Adobo seasoning is not that widely available here in Australia & I wanted some for a recipe to try. Thanks for posting this, it's handy to have but next time I think I will cut down on the salt a bit."
