1 8-ounce can reduced-salt tomato sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 cup green olives, pitted
1 clove garlic
1 pickled jalapeño pepper, seeded and stemmed
1-1/4 pound cubed pork butt
2 green bell peppers, cored, seeded and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 Spanish onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
Process in a blender until smooth the tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, olives, garlic, and jalapeño pepper. Scrape half the sauce into a plastic food-storage bag. Reserve remaining sauce in a small bowl. Add pork to bag. Turn bag over until pork is well coated. Refrigerate 20 minutes.
Heat broiler. Drain pork. Thread pork, peppers, and onion onto 4 metal skewers. Brush with some reserved sauce. Broil skewers 5 inches from heat for 15 minutes, turning skewers over halfway during cooking and brushing with additional sauce.
