Achiote Paste Spices, or Recado Rojo, have a mild, salty and garlic flavour. Originating from Mexico, the spices are traditionally mixed with orange juice and garlic to make a paste. The paste is then smothered over chicken, pork or fish to be steamed or baked.  

The spice mix, known as Sazón, is popular in Puerto Rico where it is used to marinade or rub meat and fish before grilling and barbecuing. Achiote paste is typically associated with the dish Pollo Pibil (chicken wrapped in banana leaves and then baked or steamed).

The versatile spice mix is also great when coated on chicken wings or drumsticks to bake or grill. You could also use with chicken breasts, then shred and fill soft taco shells with salad and splashes of hot sauce! 

To use, we suggest mixing 4 teaspoons with 2 crushed garlic cloves and 2 tablespoons of orange juice. This will make a spreadable paste.

    Tried this for the first time after buying Rick Stein’s Road to Mexico cookery book. Fresh and interesting spice mix which makes a fantastic marinade when mixed with orange juice. As always, with Seasoned Pioneers, great quality.
