"This recipe lends itself to adjustment and personal likes and dislikes. I ordered low sodium Adobo seasoning from Penzy Spices because it has WAY too much sodium in it."

"I did not like this at all. Way too bland for my taste. However, if you're going to try this recipe the Adobo Seasoning is hard to find but Meijer does carry it. You'll find it in the Authentic Mexican section."
