This is really good! I used Achiote Molido instead of the brick. Achiote Molido is ground achiote in a package. I made half the recipe because I had purchased only 3oz of Achiote Molido....nest time I will use this full recipe. This will be nice to have around. Thanks for sharing!

Make sure your friends like hot/spicy sauce

It was quite tasty. I used less cayenne and jalapeno than was recommended and it was still on the hot side. I'm tolerant of very spicy peppers including ghost peppers...this one was still on the warm side with half the "heat-ful" ingredients. We used it to smother shrimp and Mexican rice.
