Was looking for some to wrap some lamb in. Where did you find those?

No asian market around here but plenty of mexican markets. Think they will have them?

Still have to find the Achiote powder . Hopefully our local Mexican market will have.
Achiote powder or paste.
If you can't find it, you can grind annatto seed in a spice grinder.

If you're keeping the leaves frozen for now, and can't find the achiote, let me know and I'll send you some.

Nice!
Them Habaneros will be great for the Pibil, it's supposed to be a very hot-n-spicy dish.

Looks like you are off to a good start.
Spicesinc.com has Ground Achiote and a large variety of Dry Whole and Ground Chiles, all at good prices. A well stocked Mexican market may be able to do better but, like where I live, there are no markets in the area...JJ
