Achiote paste is another name for annatto paste, which is made from Mexican annatto seeds. Achiote paste is renowned for its bright colour and it is often used in a wide variety of traditional dishes across the world. The vibrant achiote paste is primarily used as a food colourant and when used in small amounts doesn’t have a strong flavour. However when used in larger quantities the achiote paste has an earthy, peppery flavor with a hint of bitterness. Dilute the paste with a little lime and orange juice to marinate pork, fish or chicken for pibil dishes. Alternatively you can use the achiote paste as the red base for marinades, such as Al Pastor marinade.
