great meal. worth every step. Here's some helpful hints.
I got this recipe back in 1/05 when I bought the film and finally made it yesterday. Fantastic. One of the best Mexican dishes I've ever eaten. At bit costly, but worth every step. I had some trouble with annatto seeds. Couldn't find them locally, but wholespice.com had them. Great website. Wholespice, if you can't the other spices, also has cloves, cumin, and allspice. It has just about every spice you can possibly think of. Banana leaves were impossible to find so I had to go on with out them. The tequila he uses is Casa Noble, which is top of the line, and runs about $50 a bottle. I also found out that if you don't want to buy coffee grinder that a mortar and pestle works great. It's cheaper and you can find them at stores like Tuesday Morning. If any of you are like me and hadn't worked with garlic much before in cooking, don't do what I did and buy eight bulbs of garlics. You'll have more garlic than you know what to do with. Buy one bulb and break it open, and inside you'll find about ten to fifteen cloves. There's your eight. I don't know what to do with my seven bulbs of garlic I have leftover. I guess I could make another batch of pibil. Enjoy.
