Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    Could not find anything but a sazon w/ achiote - adjusted the recipe for salt and used anyway. Wonderful, very tasty "wet" taco. Served with the Milk Street "best beans", guac and sazon rice. Absolutely will make again when I can source the achiote.
