Today we’re giving a big welcome to their Caribbean Inspired Adobo Blend and its aromatic and amazing chili-garlic flavor over some really good Barbecue Pineapple and Pork Skewers.

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.

  1. 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

  2. LAURA R RADELL

    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!!!

  3. Patrick

    For my wife and myself I make a mango chutney to go along with the skewers . For a side we have a tomato chickpea salad with a home made vinaigrette consisting of olive oil, sherry vinegar, minced shallot, salt and freshly ground pepper. One of my favorite summer dishes to have. I would love to have a set of your spices to go along with all the great recipes I make for my family.

  4. Judy E DUNCAN

    I would love a set of your seasoning blends I love to make chicken and potatoes and Caribbean pork skewers, I love to cook and try new recipes

  5. Jenny

    I would use them on some grilled fish and chicken, and those lovely kabobs. I would use the berbere, which i have used only a little before, in some lentil and vegetable stew, and some cabbage and carrot saute, maybe with green beans.

  6. Sandra

    You know this spice blend is all ready to go, making something that can really hit the table with, my guest will want to know what is in this dish?

  7. katklaw777

    I really need to spice up mt seafood. My family is getting tired of the usual shrimp and salmon that I have been making.
    So I would try them for making shrimp tacos and some broiled salmon…thanks!

  8. Anna Marie Niemczyk

    Some unusual spices. I think I would like to try the garlic and chili on some ribs. I need to see what I would use the others for. Maybe an Indian dish I have been wanting to do.

  9. What a great selection of spice blends. It isn’t always easy to find this sort of thing here, so I’d probably use them up in no time in both sweet and savory applications. I’ve used dukkah before and it is great when you have a little olive oil and fresh crusty bread and use it as a spice dip.

  10. Mrs Leo

    I plan to use the Adobe blend.Rub that into a reef fish and grill the fish over an wood fire near my house under the mango tree.
    Serve the grilled fish with roasted corn.

  11. Stephanie M

    I think all of those African spice blends would be amazing in an early fall stew, if only our weather wasn’t nearing 100s!

  12. Christina

    I would definitely go for some fusion cuisine with these spices, like some African inspired Berbere grilled chicken tacos in soft corn tortillas topped with queso fresco, onions and cilantro.

    BTW your skewers look so good and juicy.

  13. Vickie

    Although, I will use them all..as my New Years resolution was and is today use more spices..I’m looking forward to Middle East blend first.
    For my new Turin baking. So healthy.
    As a Floridian I make lots of Carribbean American cooking now..so happy t see a girl od Adobe blend too…nice for shrimp and lobster..fish.
    Thanks

  14. Elizabeth Tarlow

    Your Barbecue Pineapple Pork Skewers look and sound amazing! I would love to make Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Spiced Mushrooms using these Spice Blends! Thanks for this chance 🙂

  15. Candice

    I would make lamb shoulder with Ras el Hanout, roast carrots or pumpkin with Dukkah and use the other spice blends for kebabs, roast chicken or pork shoulder.

  16. My favorite way to cook is on the grill and I do so all year round. The spice selection would be great for using on steaks, chops, chicken, and seafood. Grilled veggies would also go well with the spice selection.

  17. Joyce Webb

    I have never seen this collection of spices around here and am VERY intrigued! I could think of a thousand ways to use them, once I knew which ones were what. These skewers look amazing, and simple too! I love trying new things.

  18. I love experimenting with new seasonings when I am cooking. These Adobo seasonings would be awesome on any meat and seafood! My husband loves steak on the grill so these would be a great flavor for his steak. Since fall is coming, soups are on my menu weekly, so I will definitely use the seasonings in many of my homemade soups! Thank you!

  19. BRENDA MCCANN

    I will be trying the seasoning with some vegan selections for my daughter and son-in-law and with some ketogenic selections for my son and daughter-in-law!!

  20. Janeen

    Looking for new spices we haven’t tried. Sometimes just finding a spice and making a recipe around a new spice is how we decide on dinner. I get sick of the same old recipes.

  21. Kimmy Ripley

    These look fascinating. 🙂 I shop at Kroger every weekend and I have never seen these. I’m not sure yet what I would make but I sure would love to give them a whirl. I am very passionate about cooking and LOVE love LOVE to try new things.

  22. Carolsue

    One thing I would make is Fajitas. I think the Adobo spice would be good for that! I’ll bet the Baharat seasoning would be good on Middle Eastern Chicken Kabobs, too!

  23. Annamarie V

    I use to make Dukah dip all the time but for some reason I haven’t in years it would be great to have the spice to make it also it would be a great spice on chicken.

  24. Brenda Haines

    I would experiment and make some new bbq rubs. First, I would make a pork shoulder roast with the Caribbean Adobo. Thanks for the chance!
