Spicy Corn Salsa
•1 med. tomato, diced
•1 onion, finely chopped

•2 sprigs of cilantro, finely chopped
•1 lime, juiced
•1 tsp. minced garlic
•1/8 tsp. salt
•1 cup La Preferida Whole Kernel Corn
•1 tsp. cumin

Pickled Red Onion
•1/2 medium red onion, sliced
•2 oz. fresh lime juice
•1 tsp. ground black pepper
•2 pinches of salt


Pat dry port butt season with 1 Tbsp. of salt, preheat oven to 350º F.

Cooking liquid: 1 bottle of your favorite beer (bottled beer tastes better than canned) and 1 cup of La Preferida Mojo de Ajo Marinade.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix, and rub over pork shoulder. Place pork in roasting pan and pour cooking liquid over pork. Place in oven (DO NOT COVER) for 30 minutes and let it caramelize. Flip over and cover with a piece of parchment or wax paper and then cover with foil. Lower heat to 325º F. and flip over every hour. If liquid is low, add water—it should only cover about the hight of a La Preferida bottle of sazón or a little less. This should take about 3 hours. When done, allow the pork to sit about 15 minutes and shred with two forks.

Cover red onion with lime juice, salt, pepper and marinate for 30 minutes. Make corn salsa and taste for seasoning. Heat up refried beans and set aside. Take tostada and spread about 1 Tbsp. of beans evenly, add pulled pork and spread event, and garnish with corn salsa and your lime pickled onions. Take a big bite and ENJOY!
