Adobo sauce is called for in many Mexican or Philippine style dishes. But sadly in Israel we don’t have adobo peppers so here a different way to make home made Adobo Sauce:


  • 3 grilled red jalapeno peppers
  • 1 grilled red bell pepper
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp of creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp of sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp of black pepper
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 2 tbls apple cider vinegar


  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender.
  2. Pulse everything into thick paste and store it in the refrigerator in a container with a tight lid.
  3. Thin the adobo paste with 1/4 cup tomato sauce before use.
  4. Lasts up to 3 months.
