These carnitas are easily one of the best recipes I've ever made in my crockpot. They were juicy, tender, and full of flavor. I also stepped out of my comfort zone with tortillas and tried a new kind - which were amazing. We had friends over that night for dinner and they got high praise from them too :)
What you need:
- 2 pork tenderloins (1 lb. each)
- 1 jar salsa verde
- 1 can Rotel tomatoes
- 1 can diced green chilies
- 1 white onion, chopped into large pieces
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
Remove pork from crockpot and drain some of the juices (reserve enough to stir back into the pork).
Shred with two forks and return to crockpot. Serve on tortillas with cheese, cilantro, avocado, tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream, lime juice, etc.
