    For the pork: Blend the lemon juice, orange juice, vinegar and achiote paste together. Pour the mixture over the pork in a large cooking pot and let it marinate overnight in the refrigerator.

    The following day, add 2 cups water, the peppercorns, bay leaves, garlic, onion, your favorite spices, and some salt and pepper. Let the pork cook over low heat for 3 to 4 hours. When the meat is tender and falling apart, it's ready.

    Serve with hot corn tortillas and your favorite garnishes.
