This achiote spice blend is made from freshly ground annatto seeds, habanero chiles, cinnamon and cloves for a woodsy, earthy flavor with a hint of spicy sweetness. Often used in rice dishes across Latin America, use this achiote spice blend to create an achiote paste, a thick, deep-red seasoning famous in the Yucatán region of Mexico. We love this blend on everything from grilled chicken wings, arroz con pollo, tamales to certain stews and bean dishes. It can be used in a marinade or dry spice rub for grilled meat or mixed with oil to brush onto seafood.
Annatto seeds, oregano, toasted cumin, black peppercorns, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, Habanero chiles
I used this blend to make a quick annatto paste for a rice dish. It turned out awesome and saved me from having to buy annatto seed, Mexican oregano and a bunch of other spices I'd only use one time individually. Will buy more as needed!
