This recipe makes a lot, so I halved it, used one chicken cut into parts. To make this I bought annatto seeds (red), and ground them in my spice grinder. Couldn't find guajillo chile, so subbed with pasilla chile. Quick and easy to grill on a weeknight. This chicken was very flavorful, a wonderful change from the usual. To grill, I just grilled over direct heat, turning occasionally till done.
Both reviews on this are from people who haven't even made the dish. Very unhelpful.
I would love to try the recipe but can not find the ground guajillo chile. I found the annatto seeds. I am not sure they are fresh or not because one package at the store the seeds were black the other package the seeds were red. Which is it? I found Guajillo Chili's whole. Can I make the power myself?
Haven't made this yet but right off the bat the cooking method is backward. Cooking outdoors you should always use the reverse sear method for indirect cooking. Do your low and slow indirect cooking first and then finish with a sear over direct heat. Trust me on this your meat will thank you.
