Conchinita Pibil – Barbecued Pork Tacos

Conchinita Pibil is a Mexican, slow roasted pork dish. It originates from the Yucatán Península, and it’s loaded with flavor. It’s the recipe I’ve chosen to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with!

I love Mexican food. To be honest, I love all food, but I love Mexican more than any other. I dream of the day Mr. Ortega will ask for my hand in marriage, because then I can have tacos day and night.

Seriously, though. I want tacos – every single day. That may be the most awesome idea ever. Mexican food just screams layers of succulent flavor in every bite, and lucky for me, Cinco de Mayo is mañana – that’s tomorrow!

Imagine my excitement when, while standing in line at the grocery checkout, I saw a magazine dedicated to Mexican recipes. It doesn’t take much to excite me, I know. I bought it without even looking at the price. Every page was filled with traditional Mexican recipes and the most beautiful and rustic photos I had ever seen. Chorizo for breakfast – yes please. Ancho chile rubbed steaks, make that two. And real smoker recipes that made me think that I must be in heaven.

So grab a Dos Equis, and let’s pretend we’re in a world far away, with delicious Conchinita Pibil, great Mexican music, and lots of culture.

Felize Cinco de Mayo!
