Adobo is a Filipino spice that is mostly made up of garlic salt. If you need a substitution, garlic salt is the best one although I would use less. Adobo is inexpensive (less than $2 for a large bottle) and can be found with the Latino foods at most grocery stores. If you can’t find it, you can make your own with this recipe.
- 4 tablespoons salt
- 3 tablespoons onion powder
- 3 tablespoons garlic powder
- 3 tablespoons ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons ground oregano
Put all ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake well and store for up to two months in a cool dry place.
