New Mexico Carne Adovada

1 1/2 cups crushed dried red New Mexican chiles, seeds included
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 teaspoons dried oregano
3 cups water
2 pounds pork, cut in strips or cubed

Combine the chiles, garlic, oregano and water and mix well to make a "caribe" sauce.

Place pork in a glass pan and cover with the chile caribe sauce. Marinate the pork overnight in the refrigerator.

Bake in a 300-degree oven for 2 to 4 hours (depending on size of meat cubes), or until the pork is very tender and starts to fall apart.

Serving suggestions: Place the Carne Adovada in a flour tortilla to make a burrito, use it as a stuffing for sopaipillas or use it as a filling for enchiladas.

Makes 6 servings.
