Pork Chile Colorado
If there is such a thing as Mexican soul food, this is it - carne con chile colorado, literally "meat with red-colored chile sauce." For this year's Cinco de Mayo celebration, honor the true spirit of Mexican cuisine by making this flavorful and well-loved dish.

It's easy to see where this dish gets its name - from the deep, reddish-brown color imparted by the flavorful dried chiles that are it's most important ingredients. Dried ancho chile peppers are commonly used in this dish, and they impart a complex, almost chocolatey flavor that is out of this world. Other dried chiles, like guajillos, New Mexicos or even chipotles, can be used to add subtle nuances of flavor. It's entirely up to you.
