A very interesting blend of flavors, definitely a must on any Mexican buffet. I tried this with steak and salad, but I believe it would be better with chicken. I couldn't find the annatto seeds (achiote), but did find a product called SazonGoya Con Culantro Y Achiote (Coriander & Annatto) in the ethnic foods section of my grocery store. I used one packet of this in place of the annato seeds, garlic and coriander called for in the recipe (the ingredients indicated there was also garlic in the mix).
