1/1 Photo of Spicy Peruvian Pork
Sassy in da South's Note:
Some might not feel this is spicy enough for their taste, so feel free to kick it up with crushed red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, etc. Also, I have fixed this by adding chopped tomatoes, chopped potatoes, and sliced onion to the mix. This does well in the crockpot also if you like.
