Adobo is a savory, all-purpose seasoning and is normally used to season and/or marinate meat, chicken, or fish. This Caribbean Adobo seasoning can be sprinkled directly onto the meat, as I have done here, or added into soups, stews, beans, and rice.

So here’s the deal: I’m obsessed with the whole barbecue-pineapple concoction. The sweet, the savory, the smoky… it’s all in there and it’s hearty, and zippy, but adding a sprinkle of that adobo, these pork skewers went from very good to pretty darn awesommmme. Once they are done, the rest will be history in under 5 minutes.

    WOW! I’ve never seen those in my Kroger! I hope I win them so I can let my cooking imagination fly!! I love using spices to create new flavors in my food. I will have to look for the Caribbean blend (unless you pick me) so I can try it on my next Kabob meal!!!

  2. What I’d do with these spices? Create a flavor explosion in my guest’s mouths! Pork, beef, and chicken kabobs? Grilled steak? Pork chops? Grilled Salmon? Grilled veggies? So many choices
