How to Use
Mix in with your favorite taco meat—including soy crumbles, if you’re meatless—and brown in some oil, with diced peppers and onions. Toss over strips of chicken or steak and grill for fajitas. Use as a dry rub for your favorite meat; we recommend using 1 tablespoon of Al Pastor seasoning per pound. Or make a marinade by combining with vinegar, broth or water, and pureed pineapple and onion. Marinate for ½ hour if cooking fish, 2 hours for chicken, 4 hours or longer if you use pork or beef. Add Al Pastor Taco Seasoning to cornbread. Toss over sliced zucchini or summer squash and roast, and add the roasted vegetables to a Mexican-style pasta with poblanos, corn, and cilantro.
