Achote Oil

Note: Most people have no idea what Achote oil is, but it is simple to make. Simply add 1 TB Annatto seed to ½ cup olive oil and steep. Do not let the oil get too hot. When the oil turned red, strain the seeds and keep the Achote oil in the refrigerator for up to one week.

2. Wash and dry the chicken.

3. Clean all vegetables and chop.

4. When the water comes to a boil, place the chicken in the pot and cook until tender (about one hour).

5. Place a colander over a large bowl.

6. Remove the chicken from the pot and allow to drain in the colander.

7. The broth should still be boiling at this point.

8. Add the vegetables, tomatoes and a couple TB of Achote oil to the pot.

9. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are done.

10. Shred the chicken after removing the skin.

11. Place the shredded chicken back into the broth and cook for 20 minutes.

12. If desired, add rice or noodles to complete the soup.
