I have an 8 oz jar of adobo and I honestly have no idea what kind of dishes I can make with it. What do I do with adobo or should I just throw it out?

I have a jar of Vigo Adobo seasoning that I really love on chicken. I just shake it on and cook. I have used it on fish too with pretty good results.

Or is it Adobo paste?
In any case do not throw it away- send it to me, and I will tell you what I did with it...

Actually, it is agood in just about any Mexican dish. If you make tacos, put it into the sauce with the other ingredients for the meat. Use it in Posole- wonderful pork stew. Enchiladas of course. How about Carnitas... etc.
