1. Combine 2 teaspoons chili powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder and 1/2 teaspoon oregano in medium bowl. Add pork; toss until well coated. Cover tightly; refrigerate 2 to 3 hours.
ALTERNATIVE: Use red chile powder (the mix) which already has the other spices in it. You save time but give up flavor. Your choice.
2. Combine sour cream, 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and remaining 3/4 teaspoon chili powder, 3/4 teaspoon cumin, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder and 1/4 teaspoon oregano in small bowl; mix well. Cover tightly; refrigerate 2 to 3 hours.
3. If using wooden skewers, soak in water 20 minutes before using. Preheat grill or broiler.
4. Toss pork with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Thread meat, peppers, and other vegetables onto 8 skewers. Grill over medium-hot coals 10 minutes until meat is no longer pink in center, turning several times.
If broiling, place skewers on foil-lined baking sheet. Broil 8 inches from heat 5 minutes per side until no longer pink in center, turning once. Serve immediately with sour cream sauce.
