Note:
I have to admit I did not like the corn tortillas; I usually use the flour ones, and will go back to them from now on! But the rest of the meal was delicious!
EL PATO can be found on line at:
MexGrocer.com
Some Wal-Mart’s have this in the ethnic isle.
And if you are lucky to live near a Mexican grocery store you can get it there. We have one not to far from us, in Lafayette so when I do go I try and stock up.

Achiote Rojo can also be found at MexGrocer.com.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
This is one version of fajitas that I make from time to time…instead of folding the tortillas I fry them till they are crisp…
2
In a large pot put the tomato sauce, fajita seasoning, and brown sugar and juice from the two limes and cook down on low till it is reduced by half. This should take about 30-45 minutes.
3
While this is cooking soften the Achiote paste in about 2 tablespoons of hot tomato sauce. Once this is soft add it to the tomato sauce.
4
Add the salsa and chicken and continue to cook on low till it is thick, hot and bubbly.
5
Top each fried tortilla with the chicken mixture and top with sour cream. Drizzle with lime juice.
6
This tomato sauce is spicy so if you’re not into the heat just use 3 cans Rotel tomatoes “regular” and add spices to suite your taste.
