In my hunt for achiote paste to marinate shrimp before I grilled it, I explored aisle after aisle and enjoyed browsing the shelves. I felt like a kid in a candy store. In addition to finding a myriad of chile peppers, salsas, spices and fresh produce items not available at my neighborhood store, I found fresh flour and corn tortillas made daily on site–the perfect wrap for those grilled shrimp!
