  • 1 can La Preferida Refried Black Beans (15 oz.)
  • 3 lbs. pulled pork
  • 2 dozen tostadas
  • 1 bottle of beer 
  • ½ red onion, sliced
  • 1 cup La Preferida Mojo de Ajo Marinade
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. paprika
  • 2 Tbsp. black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. La Preferida Sazón
  • 1 Tbsp. La Preferida Adobo with Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. onion powder

Ingredients: Corn Salsa

  • 2 sprigs cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 cup La Preferida Whole Kernel Corn, drain and rinsed 
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. garlic, minced
  • pinch of salt
  • La Preferida Jalapeño Nacho Slices, chopped (to taste)

Ingredients: Pickled Red Onions

  • ½ red onion, sliced
  • 2 oz. lime juice,
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 350º

Pat pork butt dry with paper towel and season with salt. Place in an oven-safe pan.

In a bowl, combine pork, sazón, adobo, paprika, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder, bottle of beer of your choice, apple cider vinegar, and mojo de ajo marinade — mix well.Pour over pork butt and place in the oven for 30 minutes, uncovered.

After 30 minutes, lower heat to 325º and flip pork, and cover with a sheet of parchment or wax paper, followed by a sheet of tinfoil. Flip pork every hour for the next three hours. If liquid is low, add water.

Liquid should cover about the height of a container of La Preferida Sazón — or just under the height of a container.

When done, allow the pork to rest for 15 minutes, then shred with two forks.

While pork bakes, pickle onions by placing them in a jar and covering them in lime juice and sprinkling salt over them. Marinate for 30 minutes.

While onions marinade, prepare corn salsa in a mixing bowl. Combine tomato, onion, cilantro, garlic, corn, cumin, salt and jalapeños — mix well.

When pork is done, heat refried beans on stove top and spread on each tostada. Top with pulled pork, corn salsa, and pickled onions.
