If you like carnitas and fajitas, but are in the mood for something a little different, give his recipe a try. I think you'll be impressed with the rich and pungent flavor. The combination of the flavorful meat, guacamole, corn tortillas and other fillings is wonderful. Variations of this recipe are common throughout Mexico and the Southwest, and the pork can be substituted with chicken, red snapper or other white fish, shrimp, or even beef. I adapted this version from a recipe originally from Oaxaca and featured in the Barbecue Bible. Don't be put off by the amount of chiles. This marinade is relatively mild and will not burn your tongue. We served this last night for a dinner party of 20 (triple portions) and it was perfect!
