  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. In a small bowl, combine the green chiles, chili powder, oregano, cumin, garlic and salt.
  3. Place roast on a large sheet of heavy foil. Make 8 cuts in the meat and insert the garlic halves. Rub chili mixture all over roast and enclose in foil to seal.
  4. Place in a roasting pan and cook in preheated oven until meat is fork tender, about 3 1/2 hours. Remove from oven. When cool enough to handle, shred meat into a large bowl. Stir in meat juices and serve in warm flour tortillas.

This smells fabulous while it's cooking and is SOOOO delicious! One of the best, flavorful Mexican recipes I have tried on this website. My picky 3-year old even loved it! I have yet to try Rona...

Although, our plates looked simple the taste made it feel like we were out an expensive resteraunt. The smell was amazing. I will be using the technique and rub on other meats.

Easy and delicious. Kids love it as much as we do.
