For braised pork: Coved diced pork completely and stack in cooler between 32°F and 36°F prior to use.

Add ¼ cup additional oil, onions and poblano peppers to the pan. Saute over medium-low heat for 5 minutes or until tender. Add the garlic and sauté 1 additional minute, or until fragrant. Add the reserved guajillo puree (see recipe), salsa verde and seared pork. Bring to a simmer while scraping brown bits from bottom of the pan. Transfer to a heavy baking pan; cover and bake in preheated 300°F convection oven for 60 to 75 minutes, or until pork is tender. Transfer to another container. Cover and hold hot above 135°F.

For guajillo puree: Combine guajillo chiles and hot water in a blender. Soak until peppers are softened. Puree until smooth; strain liquid thorugh fine mesh colander. Transfer strained guajillo puree to another container. Cover and hold at or below 40°F.

Spoon 3¼ oz. of the rice over the center of the tortilla and layer with 1¼ oz. roasted corn and black bean blend and 8 oz. of braised pork (see recipe).
