  • Large Mason Jar
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Funnel


  • 1/3 cup Sea Salt
  • 1/3 cup Onion Powder
  • 1/2 cup Garlic Powder
  • 2 tbsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp White Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Spanish Paprika
  • 2 tbsp Smoked Paprika
  • 2 tbsp Cumin
  • 3 tbsp Coriander
  • 4 tbsp Dried Oregano
  • 3 tbsp Achiote (Annato)


  • Mix all the ingredients thoroughly in the bowl and use the funnel to pour into mason jar. Use about 2 tbsp when seasoning, but it can be adjusted to your like.
    It yields about 2.5-3 cups
    Store in a dry, cool place.
    I usually replenish every 3 months since I cook everyday.
  • Seasoning Idea:
    Lechón seasoning:
    For a 8 lb pernil
    Mix: 3/8 Cup of adobo with 3 tbsp of Olive Oil, Vinegar and 8 garlic cloves until it
    becomes a paste. Make small pockets in the pernil by cutting slits all over.
    Rub Adobo paste thoroughly making sure to get it in the pockets.
    You can season pernil up to two days in advance.
