Chatica Ground Achiote (100g pack)
Achiote is popular Latin American spice. It is an orange-red condiment and food colouring derived from the seeds of the achiote tree (Bixa Orellana) and is often used to impart a yellow or orange colour to foods, but sometimes also for its flavour and aroma.
Achiote or annatto is mainly used to give a golden orangish colour to the food. Its scent is described as slightly peppery with a hint of nutmeg and flavour as slightly nutty, sweet and peppery.
Achiote is a must have for things like 'refrito' or 'sofrito', as well as for many soups, stews, and rice dishes.
