This recipe comes from Silvia Figueroa de Llamas of Huitzuco, Guerrero. The original recipe calls for pulque, the freshly fermented juice of the agave cactus, which can be difficult to find, so use light beer as a substitute.
3 lb pork leg or loin, boned and cut into chunks
1 onion, halved and thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 pasilla chiles
3 arbol chiles
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups flat light beer
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

In a large flameproof casserole, saute the onion and garlic in the oil until translucent.

Lightly roast chiles over an open flame. Remove the stems and seeds and blend them in a blender with the water until smooth. Add the mixture to the casserole. Rinse the blender with beer the beer and add to the casserole along with the chunks of pork and the salt.

Cook over low heat for about 10 minutes, or until the sauce is reduced and thickened and the meat starts to fall apart.
