       Hold each chili with a fork over a gas flame, turning until
  lightly roasted on all sides.  Place the chili in a bowl with 2 cups
  of warm water, and soak for 20 minutes.
       Prepare achiote oil by stirring together annato seeds and
  vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat for 2 minutes.  Remove
  from the heat and cool.  Oil will keep indefinitely, tightly covered,
  in a cool place.
  For Potato Mixture: ===================
       Stir 1/4 cup achiote oil into mashed potatoes (reserve remainder
  of the oil for another use).  Add lime or lemon juice and salt to
  taste. Set aside.
  For Sauce: ==========
       Drain ancho chilies, reserving soaking liquid, and place them in
  a processor with the olive oil, fresh chilies, and garlic.  Process
  until smooth.  With the machine running, add 1/2 cup of walnuts, 1/2
  cup reserved pepper soaking liquid and 2 tablespoons of salt.
  Process until smooth. Add half of the crumbled cheese and process
  until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl.  Coarsely chop the remaining
  walnuts and add them to the mixture with the remaining cheese; salt
  and pepper to taste.
       Shape potato mixture into about 2 dozen 1 1/2-inch balls.
  Arrange them on a bed of lettuce leaves, spooning a little sauce on
  top. Garnish with eggs, corn, coriander and olives.  Serve at room
