    Dug's Note:

    This is a classic known in Mexico as "Cochinita Pibil". If you watched the movie "Once Upon a Time in Mexico" one of the lead characters ordered this in every cantina he visited, and if it wasn't up to par, he shot the chef. I have put this together from several sources to make finding the ingredients simpler. I like it a lot, but If you're not satisfied, please don't shoot the messenger.
