Chimole is a dish served in Belize and is also known as "Black Dinner" because of its dark appearance. Ingredients include spices and some black recado (achiote paste, a blend of spices commonly used in Maya cuisine) in block pieces. This dish was first known by Mestizos, but with Belize's vast cultural diversity, most Belizeans are making it in their homes and for special occasions.[1]

  • 1/2 block of Black Recado

  • 1/4 cup complete season
  • 1/2 Onion (sliced)
  • 1/2 sweet pepper
