  • mixing bowl
  • spice grinder or food processor (optional)


  • 2 TBSP Salt (1.5 TBSP for lower sodium)
  • ½ TBSP Fresh ground black pepper (Powdered black pepper does not work well)
  • TBSP Granulated garlic
  • 1 TBSP Dried oregano (Mild oregano works best)
  • ½ TBSP Ground turmeric


  • Combine All the spices in a bowl and mix well. The mixture will be course. Store in an airtight container and enjoy.
  • For a finer texture, add the mixture to a spice grinder or food processor and pulse for a few seconds. Store in an airtight container and enjoy!


Add a couple of teaspoons to your cooking, to your liking. On average, I add about 2 TSP  to meat and 1 TBSP to rice. 
The coarse adobo pairs well with roasts, fish, potato, casseroles, and pretty much any baked or grilled dishes. The oregano gives a pop of color and an herb feel to the dish.
The fine Adobo can be used on absolutely EVERYTHING!!! Use as a multi-purpose seasoning blend for that extra kick.
