Ingredients

Naga Serpent Salsa:

Directions

Place the lard in a medium pot over medium heat. Once all of the lard is melted, add the pork cushion meat, salt, garlic and bay leaves. Cut the orange, squeeze it and add to the pot. Cook until the pork shreds easily, about 2 hours. 

Serve with the Naga Serpent Salsa in tortillas, and enjoy with a cold Mexican beer.

Naga Serpent Salsa:

Roughly chop the chiles and tomatillos and add to a saucepan over low heat. Cook for about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and onion and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Place all the ingredients into a blender and blend for 2 minutes. Season with salt.
