What is, and is not, achiote rojo?

I have a recipe that calls for "achiote rojo." Which I've never encountered before. I did some googling but that term seems pretty loosely defined and I'm still pretty confused about what they want me to use. [more inside]

Whatchu gonna do with all that junk, all that junk inside your fridge?

I made some really delicious tacos, but I have a lot of crema mexicana and queso fresco left over in proportion to the other ingredients. How can I creatively use the extra crema mexicana and queso fresco to make stuff that won't be too similar to the tacos I will have been eating all week?

How should I measure dried epazote?

I have a bag of dried epazote for beans. Two problems. First, it's a mix of coarser, stalky material and leaf matter of varying fineness. Should I run it through a food processor to make it uniform (like, say, dried oregano) before measuring? Second, how much (processed or not) should I use to a pound of beans? I've seen everything from 1 tsp to 2 tbsp. One tsp of coarse would be nothing like 2 tbsp of fine, for example.

Easy Mexican rice?

Is there a recipe for good, easy Mexican rice? Good here equals strong tomato flavor, peas and carrots (I'm not interested in strict authenticity). Bonus points if I can just dump the ingredients in my rice cooker and be done with it. [more inside]
