This is one recipe I made for my family recently.
Talk about yummy and very filling.
CRISPY PORK CARNITAS
4-5 lbs. pork butt, fat left intact
½ cup water
1 tsp garlic
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1 small can of green chiles
1/4 cup sliced peppercini peppers
Items needed to assemble the tacos: corn tortillas, cheese, shredded lettuce, sliced avocado and creamy taco sauce.
I cooked my pork butt in the crockpot for 6 hours on low along with the water, chiles, peppercinis, and seasonings.
After it was done, I shredded the pork with 2 forks and assembled the tacos.
FOR THE CREAMY TACO SAUCE:
I mixed mayo along with some of the seasonings and thinned it with some of the peppercini sauce. I didn’t measure anything, just mixed it to my taste. That’s how I roll. 🙂
(No corn tortillas for me, but my family loved them. I ate mine as a salad.)
