  • 1 1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 9 large garlic cloves, peeled
  • 3 chipotle chiles, canned in adobo sauce
  • 1 lime

Chipotle Pork Recipe

  1. Combine the first six ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Peel and section the lime over a bowl, making sure to catch all of the juices. Discard peel and squeeze all of the lime juice into the food processor. Throw in the squeezed lime sections as well. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil into the food processor and process until smooth. Scrape the chipotle mixture into a resealable plastic bag. Add the pork and marinate in the refrigerator for one hour.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 325 F.
  3. Heat a small Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil into the pan. Remove the pork, but reserve the marinade. Sprinkle salt over the pork and add the pork to the Dutch oven. Saute for approximately 8 minutes, browning on all sides. Remove the pork and set aside. Add broth and reserved marinade to the Dutch oven and bring to a boil, scraping the bottom to loosen the browned bits. Return the pork to the Dutch oven and cover, bake for 2.5 hours or until the pork is fork tender.
  4. Slice or shred the pork and toss with sauce.
