Cuban-style mojo (pronounced “MO-ho”) is one of a number of loosely related sauces and marinades that play significant roles in Hispanic and Caribbean cuisines. These sauces share the use of oil, spice, and acidic (usually citrus juice or vinegar) ingredients, although the specific combinations are unique to each culture. The meaning of the word “mojo,” used as a name for these sauces, is often traced back to the Spanish word “mojar,” a verb meaning to make wet, or sometimes to the Portuguese word “molho,” which means sauce.
Our Cuban Mojo Spice Blend was created to showcase the well-balanced blend of pungent garlic, spicy chiles, and citrusy orange flavors that are the signature flavor of Cuban mojo sauce. We’ve carefully blended it from two kinds of garlic, orange peel, and habanero chile powder. This dry seasoning blend can be sprinkled over finished foods before serving or used to season raw foods before cooking.
