One of my family’s absolute favorite dishes that my mom would prepare was pork chile colorado. It was prepared with homemade Mexican adobo sauce and seared pork that would slow cook for hours. The dried chile ancho, guajillos and japones really give this Mexican adobo sauce those traditional flavors that I grew up with.
This adobo sauce can be used in a variety of authentic Mexican recipes. You can use it as is for marinating your favorite meats or seafood. Add a little broth to the adobo and it becomes an enchilada sauce or a great braising liquid for seared beef or pork dishes.
