Adobo seasoning is a Latino spice mixture often used in cooking in regions such as the Southwestern United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. The mixture typically includes spicy ingredients such as chile powder; cooks often use it as a rub on meats, according to Gourmet Sleuth. While you can find adobo seasoning in the spice section of the supermarket, you can also make your own seasoning very easily.

  1. 1

    Pour all of the ingredients in the bowl.

  2. 2

    Mix the ingredients thoroughly with the spoon.

  3. 3

    Rub the seasoning on meats before cooking or use it in taco meat mixtures to spice it up.

  4. 4

    Pour the contents of the bowl into the small container and tighten the lid when you are done using the seasoning. Store the seasoning in a cool, dry place away from the light. This will allow the adobo seasoning--which contains a lot of ground spices that don't last as long as whole spices--to stay fresh for up to two years, according to Spice Barn.
