Essential to Yucatan cuisine is the recado, which is either sold mercados locales or made by family recipes, generation to generation. There are three basic recados - Recado de Bistec, Recado Negro (also called Chilmole) and the most popular Recado Rojo.
Awesome as a dry rub for grilled chicken as it creates an amazingly different culinary flavor explosion that is simply muy sabroso.
You can also use this seasoning as a base to make your own Recado Rojo or Achiote paste which is most famously know as the predominant seasoning for Pollo Pibil. To make the paste add vinegar and either orange or lime juice and mix until your desired thickness is reached.
Makes a killer wet rub ( marinade), with a little olive or sunflower oil, and lots of fresh squeeze of lime & oranges.
