Recipe - dirt simple Carne Adovada

So, the house warming party went okay. We've had two people begging for my Carne Adovada recipe though - so - I'll post it here for everyone else. It'll be a pain to do without some of the ingredients, but a good Mexican grocery should have a lot of them.

Basically, you need pork or beef for this. I used a nice rump roast of pork and hacked it into one inch cubes. Take these cubes, and toss them in a sturdy dutch oven with garlic, onion, oregano, and some salt and pepper.

Now - pour on one can of Las Palmas Chile Colorado ( http://www.mexgrocer.com/1293.html - see here for a can of it.) Add a hefty pinch of chipolte chile powder, a chipolte pepper, or a chipolte from a can. You just want a smoky undertone.

Bake at 300 until tender.

Other options -

Add a can of beans to it and you've got a full meal.

Freeze it and use it to zoot up chili.

Use it in enchiladas for filling.

Use the Las Palmas Enchilada sauce for a milder result.

Use water to wash out the can for more liquid or use a nice Mexican beer.
