El Guapo Whole Achiote (Achiote Entero), 1.5 oz

Whole Achiote (Achiote Entero), also known as Annatto, are bright red seeds of the achiote tree that are used throughout Latin America to give dishes rich yellow-orange color and earthy, peppery flavor. In Mexican cooking, ground achiote is mixed with garlic, oregano, chiles and spices into a paste for rubbing on meat, including the slow-roasted pork dish, cochinita pibil. Achiote oil is made by steeping the seeds in hot oil. The strained oil is used for cooking meats, stews, rice, beans and vegetables. Whole Achiote is one of the many products offered by El Guapo and you can be confident that they are of the highest quality. For the past 30 years, El Guapo has provided ingredients to make delicious, authentic Mexican meals for your family.
