Slow Cooker Carnitas

Printable Recipe

Slow Cooker Carnitas
4 lbs pork (any type-ribs, chops, roasts, loin, etc.)
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tsp cumin
2 Tbsp chili powder
1 (4 oz) can diced green chiles
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
2-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
corn or flour tortillas
Toppings: cheddar cheese, sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce, cilantro, guacamole

If using pork loin or a roast, cut into a few pieces. Place pork in a crock pot. Add remaining ingredients except for tortillas and toppings. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.

Using two forks, shred meat into bite sized pieces. Place shredded meat on a baking sheet and spread out evenly. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes so the meat gets lightly brown and crispy but not dried out.

Serve in warm tortillas and top with desired toppings.

Serves 8-10
