Ingredients

  • 5

    pounds bone-in pork butt - (to 5 1/2 lbs) untrimmed

  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2

    cup canned chopped green chilies

  • 1/2

    pound queso Fresco cheese or any meltable white

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Season the pork with salt and pepper. Place in a medium roasting pan and add 1/2 cup of water. Place in the oven and roast for 1 hour. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and continue to cook for 3 hours. Remove from the oven and cool completely. In a large sauté pan, over medium heat, add the oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté until the onions are caramelized, about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and cool completely. When the pork is cool, remove any excess fat and the bone. Shred the meat into bite-size pieces. In a mixing bowl, combine the pork, onions, chilies and cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly. This recipe yields about 3 1/2 cups.
