Use this tasty oil made from achiote/annatto seeds to saute the veggies for our Pigeon Pea Rice "Arroz de Gandules" recipe.
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons achiote/annatto seeds
- To make the achiote oil, pour the oil and achiote seeds in a pot or skillet. Cook over medium-low heat for 5 to 10 minutes. The oil will be reddish-orange from the achiote. Strain the oil, discard the achiote seeds and set aside to cool.
