The adobos are common and habitual in the Mexican recipe book. They consist of mixing various ingredients and condiments to obtain a type of salsa that is used to season other foods like meats or fishes. The vast majority of the adobos are prepared with dried chilies.
In this recipe the dried chili that is used is the pasilla pepper, which fills the adobo with a flavor that is intense, spicy, toasted and even with sweet notes. This combination of flavors are mixed with tomato, garlic and onion that help to balance the flavors. As good adobo spices are also used that give an aromatic touch and as final touch the acidic point of the vinegar could not be missed. It is a very complete adobo that everything that touches is filled with flavor.
We recommend using the pasilla pepper adobo to marinate some types of meat. If pork or chicken are going to be cooked, marinate them with this adobo for about 2 hours and if shrimps are going to be cooked marinate them with the adobo for about 10 minutes. The flavor that they will acquire is going to be of another dimension.
