Adobada Guatemalan Style


2 pounds of pork chops
1/2 cup sour orange juice or 2 ounces vinegar
6 tomatoes
4 green tomatillos or miltomates
1 onion
3 dried ancho chiles (about 3/4 oz.), stemmed and seeded
5 dried guajillo chiles (about 1 oz.), stemmed and seeded
6 garlic cloves 
1 centimeter approx. cinnamon in slice
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
4 teaspoon achiote pasta
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of black pepper powder
4oz dried pumpkin seeds
4oz sesame seeds


Put the tomatoes, onion, 4 garlic, chili peppers with water in pot to boil until they are soft. Meanwhile we put the dried pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, cinnamon slice, and two garlics to roast in a pan.

When everything is cooked and toasted we put it together in the blender, add the rest of the ingredients: dried oregano, cumin, achiote pasta, salt, and black pepper. Blend it. Wash the pork chops, add the sauce and leave in the refrigerator 3 to 4 hours, the longer the better or you can do it a day before so the pork takes on the flavor of the sauce.

Finally, cook it on the grill. You can eat it with rice and a salad.
