El Guapo Seasoned Annatto Paste (Pasta de Achiote Condimentada) 3.5 oz

Annatto Paste (Pasta de Achiote Condimentada) is made from ground annatto seeds (also known as achiote seeds) mixed with spices, garlic and crushed chiles. It adds distinctive yellow-orange color and rich flavor to marinades for chicken, pork or seafood, as well as to tamale dough and empanadas. Annatto paste is also used to season sofrito, the aromatic mixture that is the foundation of many Latin and Caribbean dishes. Yucatan’s famous slow-roasted pork dish, cochinita pibil, owes its amazing flavor to an overnight rub of the paste mixed with citrus juices. For the past 30 years, El Guapo has provided ingredients to make delicious, authentic Mexican meals for your family.
