Adobo is a Mexican paste made from fresh and/or dried chillies, herbs, spices and vinegar. There are many versions of Adobo with varies types of chillies being used in different regions. Adobo paste can be used on a variety of dishes from pork and lamb chops to chicken pieces.
At Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School we use this paste to add spice to a number of dishes. We have been growing chillis and peppers for over 10 years, using them to make a variety of sauces and pastes. For our Wickedfood Earth Adobe Chilli paste we roast a blend of 8 different organically grown peppers and chilli to concentrate the flavours and give a pleasant smoky flavour. We then peel and puree them. To build the flavour profile further, we have added fresh garlic, and a blend of spices and herbs, to create a delicious hot, salty paste.
Pork or lamb chops
Wickedfood Earth Adobe Chilli paste
- Spread paste over the chops. Ideally marinade over night, however they can simply marinade for 30 minutes before cooking.
- Cook for 20 minutes at 190ºC. Cover with tin foil after 15 minutes.
- Also great to braai the meat over hot coals.
- Once cooked transfer to a warm serving dish and serve with wedges of lime, guacamole, green salad and white rice or chips.
