Substitute for annatto seed?

JonParker | Nov 5, 2012 05:12 PM

I have some,short ribs that I plan to turn into birria tacos. But my recipe calls for achiote paste, which I couldn't find at my Latin market. The one ingredient in achiote paste that keeps me from making my own is the annatto seeds.

Is there anything with a similar flavor profile that I can use? I've never had it, so I have no idea what I'm looking for.
