Achiote is also known as Recado Rojo and can be found in various Central American cuisines. This spice & chile blend gets its vibrant red color from ground annatto seeds. Mixed with fragrant spices and Mexican chiles, it forms an undeniably flavorful spice.
Achiote can be used as a rub, marinade (just add some oil), or all-purpose seasoning. Achiote is perfect on chicken, pork, roasted vegetables, rice, soups, and stews.
