    Mexican adobo sauce is perfect for any kind of Mexican cuisine. The sauce has got a spicy flavor and was originally used to preserve meat.

    The sauce is mainly made from chili powder, garlic, vinegar and other spices. I first tried the sauce at a Mexican restaurant and really loved it. So, I asked the chef for the recipe and he told me everything that I needed to make the sauce at my home.
