Achiote paste - recado rojo

pikeman | Aug 4, 2010 12:03 PM

I followed a recipe to make this from scratch and could not get the anatto seeds ground finely enough. I was using a spice grinder and the seeds mostly flew around. I think I needed a mortar and pestle to get them broken.
Can I buy this stuff ready to use in any local stores? There must be some, but I want to avoid a goose-chase all over Austin to find it.
