I have started to rely on spice mixtures more often in my cooking. I have a lovely top-secret blend of Armenian spices that makes divine meatballs. I don’t know what’s in it. One of my friends makes it and delivers it in a small glass jar with a picture of Mt Ararat on it.
I make the Savory Spice Mix from Practical Paleo in bulk. I love that stuff! Worth the price of the book.
Shout out to Penzey’s Spices as well. “Love People. Cook them delicious food.”
But my work horse is this stuff:
It is magically delicious. I’ve tried a couple of different Adobo blends. Trust me, this is the best one. It’s the key to my delicious roast chicken and killer street style tacos.
I find it at my local Whole Foods. You can also find it on-line. Get some!
