Mexican Oregano has a much stronger flavor than the common Italian and Greek oreganos found on grocery store shelves. Mexican Oregano's flavor has quickly gained popularity with some chefs in recent years for its strong flavor and the subtle sweetness that is unique to this oregano from south of the boarder.
Mexican Oregano's flavor is still so similar to traditional oregano that it is a good substitute for the more common Mediterranean oreganos as long as it is added at about half the amount called. Add it to Mexican and southwest recipes calling for "Mexican Oregano" as called for to add a potent oregano flavor. This strong flavored oregano is almost impossible to find in most parts of the U.S. and we feel luck to have a source through which to provide you with it.
