Our Annatto / Achiote paste is made with the highest grade Annatto seeds that are grown in the humid tropical climate of the Yucatan Peninsula in the south east of Mexico.
It is traditionally used as a seasoning in the famous Yucatecan and Central American dishes, mainly those influenced by the Mayan culture.
This is ideal to marinate or to prepare grilled or roasted beef, chicken and the most famous Cochinita Pibil.
It also tastes good with the BBQ food.
It’s really easy to prepare!
