Achiote – Yucatan Spice Blend (Recado Rojo)

Achiote is a spice mixture from the Yucatán and Oaxacan cuisines of Mexico and parts of Belize. However, since Achiote is also an interchangeable term for annatto seeds, and since annatto seeds are available across the tropical Americas, it seems (according to my research) that Achiote can describe pretty much any spice blend using annatto/ achiote.
