Step 1/5

Cut open the dried chiles and remove the seeds. Fry the dried chili peppers with a small amount of oil for 2-3 minutes. Boil them in water for about 10 minutes. In the same frying pan where you fried the chili peppers add 1 teaspoon of oil and cook the onions and tomatoes until they browned. Add the garlic, the remaining spices and bouillon cubes. Cook for about 5 more minutes. Add the chili peppers with their water and the cooked ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth.

Step 2/5

Season the pork shoulder with salt, pepper and cumin. Place the pork shoulder in a pot and pour the sauce on top adding 2 cups of water and the apple cider vinegar. Cook on medium heat for 3 hours. Remove the pork shoulder and shred it.

Step 3/5

On a hot and buttered plancha place 4 slices of bread. Pour the Birria sauce over the bread to coat. Add shredded cheddar cheese on top. Once the cheese has melted flip the bread slices. Flip once more and add the cooked shredded pork shoulder on 2 of the slices. Take the other 2 slices and place on top to make 2 sandwiches. Set aside.

Step 4/5

Take some pickles and place them in a jar. Reserve the juice. Take a bag of flamin' hot cheetos and pour the pickle juice inside. Give it a shake. Pour the flamin' hot cheetos and pickle juice over the pickles. Place the jar in the fridge to marinate for 3 hours.
