Achiote has an earthy, nutty, and slightly peppery profile that is complimentary to a wide variety of dishes. Add it to a marinade for kabobs and skewers, create a dry spice rub for grilled meat, or give your routine rice dishes an extra punch. We've found it to work splendidly with meals that include eggs, legumes, okra, onions, and tomatoes.
Achiote is considered to be an indispensable ingredient in Latin cuisine, so consider using it the next time you tackle a Recado Rojo spice blend or mole sauce--you won't be disappointed!
Achiote has also been used as a natural food coloring, it gives anything you cook with it a beautiful orange red color. Try it on fish tacos for authentic flavor and color!
