    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is hot, as in spicy hot. If you don't like hot then this may not be your cup of tea. I found this in the Chicago Tribune, again, one of my favorite sources of really good recipes, the columnist said it was inspired by a Rick Bayless recipe. I loved it, my husband (not a lover of HOT) only liked it. *Achiote paste can be found in well-stocked grocery stores or in Mexican grocery stores...OR you can make your own, there are a couple of recipes here for it.
