DIRECTIONS

  • Infusing Annatto Oil:
  • Heat the seeds and oil in a small saucepan over low heat, swirling pan frequently, until the oil turns bright red-orange in color. Simmer for 1 to 2 minutes and then remove from heat. Let it cool for about 10 minutes and then strain the oil. Discard the seeds.
  • Reheat annatto oil and butter in a skillet. Saute the onions, celery and garlic with salt, pepper and cumin to taste until soft. Add the bell peppers and cook for another 2-3 minutes until the peppers are lightly cooked.
  • Next add the rice and stir into the mixture.
  • Saute it until the rice turns opaque.
  • Add the stock or water and cook covered for about 15 minutes in medium heat until cooked.
  • Garnish with cilantro, lime slices and Pimentos.
