Kitchen Cabinet Hinge

In the kitchen we have this tall cabinet with two doors that open out. No strip down the middle, the doors come very close when they close. Right now, they won't close, and I think it's due to the hinges. I have attached a pic of one of the hinges (kind of blurry, but hopefully it shows enough). It's like this rounded section of one of the sides of the hinge is supposed to fit in the hollowed out section of the other side...Yet if I try to match them up, they are so crooked that it's even worse!

What other hinges could I use? Or is there a way to adjust these, or are they not meant for this type of install?

Thank you!

There looks to be printing on the hinge. See if there are replacement hinges available from the manufacturer.

The photo is a bit out of focus and I can not see a second screw but, If I recall correctly, next to the screw with the washer backing that holds the door portion of the hinge to the frame portion of the hinge, is a small screw that will move the door in and out (left and right as viewed from the front with the door closed), when you move the door in you must then retighten the larger screw. To move the door out you must loosen the larger screw. good luck.
