Carne Adovada

Carne adovada is a beloved native food in New Mexico, where it is pork chunks or chops sopped in a puree of red chile and baked slowly enough to become dramatically tender and, in serious chile-growing country, even more dramatically hot. Served in all levels of restaurant, it can be a substantial and quite elegant main dish (as at La Posta de Mesilla in Las Cruces) or it can be the companion of truck-stop eggs.
