I learned to make this spicy red chile dish by experimenting in my kitchen after enjoying it at a friend's place. It takes a while to make, but it is well worth it. Serve hot with tortillas, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa and sour cream. This also works well with a pork roast.

This was very good, although I was expecting it to taste more authentic, tasted jult like a roast to me. It was very good in a burrito with beans and all the fixins, this helped a lot with the taste better than on its own.

I really thought this recipe would be hotter than it is, but my husband and I both thought it was great. We used the meat to make soft tacos, but I am already looking to try new recipes with it. The meat has a mild smoky flavor.
