    • Adobo Chili Spice (pork)

      Adobo Chili Spice Mix for Pork


      4 ancho or California dried chiles (4 to 6)
      1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
      1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
      1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
      3 cloves garlic, peeled
      juice of 1 orange, 1 lemon and 1 lime

      Remove the seeds and veins from the chilies, tear the chilies into small pieces, and soak them in warm water until they begin to swell, about 30 minutes. Drain, reserving the water.
      Combine the ingredients in blender or food processor and blend to a not-too-smooth texture (there should still be pieces of chili identifiable in the paste). If more liquid is needed to blend, add a little of the soaking liquid.
      Makes 1 cup, enough for 6-8 chops or 2 pounds of cubed pork. Can also use on chicken or turkey parts, but do not marinade these overnight.

        Sounds like the marinade used on my favorite pork tacos. I can't wait to try this and see if it's right.
