Cochinita Pibil

Cochinita Pibil

Recado, a sweet spice paste used traditionally in Mexican cookery, is the base of this recipe. This recipe calls for pork, though recado also favors turkey and chicken. A truly unique dish and a must-try.

Serve with Xi Ni Pek Salsa and pickled onions.


  • 3½ oz. Recado Colorado
  • ½ cup sour orange juice or white vinegar
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp salt
  • Banana leaves
  • 1 suckling pig thigh
  • 2 onions, sliced


  1. 1

    In a blender, combine garlic, orange juice, recado and salt to make a homogenous marinade.

  2. 2

    Marinate pork for several hours. Wrap the pork in banana leaves with sliced onions.

  3. 3

    Place under the broiler and cover.

  4. 4

    Cook at 375°F until meat falls apart easily (approx. 2½ - 3 hours).
