The parallels between Sun Kissed and authentic Mexican Al Pastor — sizzling grilled meat, chilis, spices and pineapple — are unmistakable. Wrap a succulent slice of our Hot Capicolla around a spear of fresh pineapple and a thin slab of young Mahón cheese, a Mediterranean import known for its dense, buttery flavor and herbal overtones. Take it one step closer to authentic Al Pastor by quickly grilling the bite over a hot grill, just enough that the savory Hot Capicolla begins to melt, the cheese starts to soften and pineapple slightly chars. It’s a flavor-filled trip to Central Mexico, without having to find your passport.

ABOUT COLUMBUS® HOT CAPICOLLA
Made with closely-trimmed whole pork shoulder, we craft COLUMBUS® Hot Capicolla by coating the meat with cayenne pepper and paprika, then slow-cooking it until it’s tender.
