I've tried this mojo criollo before and to be honest it surprised me. The smell isn't that great - a little tangy, which threw me off a bit. But, the flavor on the chicken was delicious. Very sweet. Really good stuff this mojo criollo. I believe you can use this on pork, chicken and steak. So it does give you some variety which is helpful. All I will say now is to give it a try. You will not regret it.
