Adobo is an all purpose seasoning or rub that adds flavor to meats. It is used mainly in Puertorican cuisine.  There are other kinds of wet (marinades) and dry (rubs) adobos in Latin America and Spain. I like making my own adobo.  It is not hard at all, so give it a try.  The oregano I use I grow in my herb garden, dry it and ground it, but you can find ground oregano in the supermarket. This mix doesn’t include pepper but if you want you can add to taste.   This is my version of Adobo Criollo.
