NOTES : To make achiote oil, heat 1 cup vegetable oil in a heavy saucepan
over medium heat. Add 1/4 cup achiote (annatto) seeds (available in spice
stores or Hispanic markets). Keep it just below the boiling point for 5
minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand until the oil turns a deep
orange color, about 1 hour. Strain into a small jar, discarding seeds.
Store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to a month.

Olive oil may be substituted for achiote oil or use Sazon spice.

Asopao De Pollo

-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cloves garlic -- minced
1 3/8 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
1 3 lb. whole chicken -- cut up
1 green pepper -- chopped
2 onions -- chopped
1/2 cup lean ham -- diced

In a mortar and pestle grind together the garlic, oregano and salt into a
paste and rub onto all the chicken pieces. In a Dutch oven, or large
casserole, over medium heat, melt butter and brown chicken pieces on all
sides, about 10 - 12 minutes. Remove chicken from pan set aside and keep
warm. Add the green pepper and onion to the pot and cook slowly for
3 minutes. Stir in the ham and cook 1 minutes longer. Add tomatoes and
cook 2 minutes. Pour this tomato mixture into a bowl and set aside. Return
chicken to the pot and spoon the tomato mixture evenly over the chicken
coating each piece completely. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook 40
minutes. Remove chicken from pot, set aside and allow to cool. While
chicken cools add rice to pot and the stock. Season with salt and pepper
to taste and stir to mix completely. Replace cover and cook over low heat
for 20 minutes. When chicken is cool enough to handle remove meat,
discarding skin and bones. Cut meat into bite sized chunks. When rice is
done add chicken,along with the peas. Recover and simmer 10 minutes. Add
the olives and simmer 3 minutes longer. Serve directly from the pot.

Asopao means "soupy" and that's what this Puerto Rican dish should be.
