  2. Put rice on to cook, then corn.
  3. While this is cooking, drain beans and set aside.
  4. When corn is near done, heat a med-sized cast skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat, and add marinated pork including marinade in bag.
  5. While meat is browning, cut corn from ears.
  6. Add corn, beans, chili, garlic, lime and spices to browned meat; add remainder of bottle of marinade.

RECIPE BACKSTORY
I had a cookout last weekend, and decided while at the Kroger's buying my supplies that, instead of making BBQ sauce (my original plan), I'd buy a bunch of these bottled marinades they had on sale and we'd have a bunch of DIFFERENT flavored meats! BRILLIANT! Fun was had by all. So what to do w/the rest of the bottle? Here's what I made last night, and it was DEE-lish! Hubby loved it!
