"This was wonderful! I added more olives (because we love olives), some of the olive brine (instead of more salt) and I didn't have any sazon so I improvised by mixing equal parts of coriander, cumin, ..." See moreachiote (ground annatto), salt and powdered garlic. Served with rice and fried plantains."
