Pasta de Achiote Also known as recado colorado in the Yucatan, where it originated. This marinating paste can be used on chicken, pork or fish. Although the base for achiote paste is sold under several brand names, ready to be mixed with orange juice, this homemade version has a much fresher, livlier taste and keeps for months in the refrigerator. Annatto (Achiote) seeds are sold in Hispanic grocery stores.
Lightly charr the garlic on a comal. Mash.
Toast and Grind (exept Anatto seeds) all of the Spice ingredients except the orange/lime juice in a spice mil or mortar Add the orange juice, a little at a time, until a thick paste is formed.
