I grabbed a packet of dried spice mix off a rack adjacent to a vast pile of dried red beans. It's labeled Izalco Relajo Spice Mix. It includes: seasame seeds, oregano, bay leaves, pumpkin seeds, plum chile, annalo powder, cumin, ground cloves, and black peper.
I haven't found much information about this on the web. I can buy a book of Salvadorian recipe, used, from Amazon for $1,900 though.
So I'm looking for guidance.
