YieldsMakes about 1/3 cup, enough to marinate 1 to 2 pounds meat

Notes: Achiote paste is sold in reddish orange blocks in Latino markets; if it's unavailable, use 1 more tablespoon paprika (1 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons total). The recipe for this marinade can be doubled. It's also delicious on pork. You can make the marinade up to 2 days before using; cover and chill.
