    1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add tomatoes, onion, cilantro, tomatillos, garlic, jalapeno pepper and chilies; cook about 2 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring frequently. Add oregano, cumin, red pepper and coriander; mix well. Refrigerate mixture until thoroughly chilled.
    2. Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray shallow baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Using sharp knife, cut 8-10 slits about 1 inch long and 1 inch deep in top and sides of pork roast. Press heaping teaspoonful of cold vegetable mixture into each slit; spread remaining mixture over top and sides of roast. Place in prepared pan. Roast for about 1 1/4 hours (about 20 minutes per pound), or until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F. Remove roast from oven; let rest about 10 minutes before slicing.
