    DaleB's Note:

    I love Mexican food. So here is my rendition of a classic. Salsa Verde con Puerco: a lively mixture of pork tenderloin, tomatillo, chilies and peppers served in a tortilla wrap. Presented along with refried beans and yellow rice it's about as Mexican as it gets. I have to caution, don't touch your face when prepping the chilies and peppers. WASH YOUR HANDS! Oh yeah, don't forget the tequilla!
