    1. 1. Place vinegar, cumin, chopped chiles, and oil in a blender. Add in 1/2 c. water and puree. Season with salt.
    2. 2. Place meat in large bowl. Add in vinegar mix and mix thoroughly. Cover and chill overnight.
    3. 3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place onions in a single layer in a large Dutch oven. Scatter mint, thyme, rosemary, oregano, parsley, and cilantro on top, then add in meat with marinade and whole chile. Cover and cook in oven, stirring occasionally, till meat is tender and marinade and meat juices have combined to create an herb-perfumed broth, 2-3 hrs.
    4. 4. Meanwhile, peel potatoes and place in a second large Dutch oven. Season with salt, cover, and bake till tender, about 1 hour. (Potatoes can also be wrapped in aluminum foil and roasted for about 1 hour.) Remove huatia and potatoes from oven. Season to taste with salt. Spoon meat and potatoes onto plates. Throw away herbs, then spoon broth over meat and serve.
