Carne Adovada

Red as a Santa Fe sunset, Carne Adovada (KAR-neh ah-doh-VAH-dah) looks right at home on the holiday dinner table. The carne, or meat (in this case, pork) is bathed in a spicy chile sauce. Wrap it in flour tortillas or dollop with reduced-fat sour cream to tone down the heat a bit, if you like.
