Achiote Paste - 1kg

Cool Chile Achiote paste is made in our London factory to our own recipe using NO PRESERVATIVES! We use annatto (achiote) seeds imported from the Yucatan for a rich, earthy flavour and bright red colour.

Dilute the paste with a little lime and orange juice to marinate pork, fish or chicken for pibil dishes. It is also used as a base for other marinades when you want to impart a bright red colour, such as Al Pastor marinade.


  • Product Origin

    UK
  • Serving Suggestion

    For 4 medium-sized mackerels/ 4 pieces of chicken or 450g of pork:

    Dissolve 20g of the achiote paste in a 45g citrus juice, we like to use the juice of 1 lime topped up with a bit of fresh orange juice, add 1 clove of garlic which has been mashed up with salt if you wish. Marinate for 4-8 hours, then roast, grill, or barbecue.

    Try:

    Mashing achiote paste with mayonnaise or softened butter, slather on lean meat or fish and barbecue! Mmmmm...

    Achiote paste can also be used to make rice dishes to impart a slightly earthy flavour and golden colour.
