Pinchos de Cerdo con Salsa de Guayaba (Pork Skewers with Guava Sauce)

Cooking Light

The oregano colors this pork slightly green--and gives it great flavor. If you grind dried oregano leaves in a spice grinder, the color is less green. Slice the remaining guava paste, and serve it as an appetizer with queso fresco cheese and crackers.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 2 skewers and about 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)
