Mike Morales’ Puerco Pibil Recipe with Soltado Tequila

[Soltado Tequila was a paid sponsor of the Tequila Aficionado Heartland Tour and paid a nominal fee to be mentioned here and on our networks as we saw fit.  In the interest of full disclosure, we didn’t want to love Soltado but we do.  It makes an amazing Puerco Pibil.] 

Sharing this recipe could get Mike killed. Luckily, Johnny Depp is too busy restoring the balance to other countries while things get crazy up in the Tequila Aficionado kitchen.
