    I've seen that paste in the stores, don't remember where, but never tried it. Looks mighty good.

    you should....it is very easy to use and it's not spicy, infact i add chilis to it, it is an earthy, slightly salty flavor that is very versatile and fares well for grilling or smokeing. just add lime, olive oil, and garlic.....of course i add more.

    That looks absolutely amazing!!!!! We have a few packs of achiote in the cupboard and may have to do this one today! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Not to highjack your awesome thread but, here is my favorite achiote recipe. Tacos al Pastor on the grill. It rocks!!!! Rick Bayless is a huge achiote fan.....
