About the Recipe

Our Pulled Pork Raviolio pairs so well this fusion Italian/Tex Mex sauce. We think it's the perfect Fathers day feast.
This sauce recipe was inspired by a small Mexican restaurant in Sonoma California. The sweetness of the orange perfectly balanced the heat of the jalapeño. We served it with this simple corn & onion relish and Cotija cheese. Definitely a crowd pleaser.
