Achiote paste can be found in the spice section, or meat section, in Mexican markets. I also saw a recipe on Zaar foor it. This is a great marinade for skirt steak, but is also good with pork and chicken.

I used this to marinade some chicken breasts tonight, which I later grilled. Very nice. I used Achiote Paste. for the achiote paste. Annatto seeds are new to me, so we are trying some of the different recipes here to see what we think of them . So far, looks like we like them! Thanks for sharing this recipe. Sorry I didn't take a picture - I don't know where my head was. Hopefully others will catch on to this very nice spice.
