El Yucateco 3.5 oz 12 Pack Pasta de Achote Achiote Paste
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This paste is wonderful in so many different foods. I combine it with lemon and rub it on a roast chicken or baked cut up chicken or on a thanksgiving turkey. I combine it with chipotle peppers with some adobo sauce and spread it on thinly sliced pork for a few hours then grill it for tacos al pastor along with grilled thinly sliced red onions and sliced grilled pineapple. I use it as part of the seasonings for the chicken that goes in tamales. I use it for about a dozen other recipes. This stuff is amazing and brings life to so many dishes.
This spice blend originates in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico (according to my Mom) and is widely used in Mexican cooking. It was originally a Mayan condiment but has spread in use. It consists of Annatto seed along with a number of other spices. It is commonly also called Recado Rojo.
Once opened, I store the leftover paste in the refrigerator for best results. That keeps it tasting fresh and helps keep it from...
This was just what we needed. It adds the perfect spice. I gave a package to some close friends of ours and they were more than happy with it.
It's achiote paste. I used it in several Mexican dishes that called for it and the paste added a nice flavor. It's easy to use and for most recipes you'll either use a block or half a block. This brand seems fairly good so if I need achiote in the future this is what I'll use.
