Annatto Spice Blend
To make ahead: Store airtight at room temperature for up to 3 months.
Equipment: Spice grinder
Tip: Annatto is a rusty-red seed with a nutty and mildly peppery taste. Used for its color as much as its flavor in many Latin American dishes, it comes from the annatto (achiote) tree, native to Central and South America. Buy the seeds (whole or ground) online or in Latin markets.
