Carnitas Fries with green chili braised pork, habanero cream, and queso fresco.
Carnitas Salad Bowl, ala Kelly’s kitchen! This really hit the spot!! I’ve been craving Mexican food. #Carnitas on a bed of lettuce with pico de gallo, avocado, cilantro and a drizzle of #chipotle mayo! Day 16 is done, my friends!
🌮🌮Every tortilla dreams of being stuffed with carnitas!!!😂😂
This is one of my gold nugget recipes because it takes minutes to prep to pop into the slow cooker, and it makes loads and loads and freezes 💯 .
I use carnitas for tacos, enchiladas, burritos, Mexican plates (with red rice!), and even for nachos (OMG it is the BEST!!!)
Also, it’s so good for summer BBQs! ☀️ Do the browning on the grill and lay out a Taco Spread!! ~ N x ❤️

The best part of Monday is that the next day is Taco Tuesday! I’ve been at my new job for two months now and I’ve finally had some time to explore. @cholita_linda tacos were so delicious 🤤 I ordered the classics (from top and then clockwise): Baja fish, carne asada, and carnitas tacos. And I washed it all down with a Mexican Coca Cola 🌮🥤
Taco Tuesday bowl coming at ya! I got an @instantpotofficial for xmas and have been loving how quick it cooks everything. I love carnitas, so I was super excited make this my first slow-cooking type recipe. Most people would use pork shoulder or butt for this, but I’m not a fan of that much fat so I went for a lean boneless pork chop instead (I had the butcher at @wholefoods cut me a 2 lb piece). It won’t be as tender, but I much prefer the leaner alternative as it fits better with my macros and frankly easier on my stomach. I rubbed the pork generously with @primalpalate taco seasoning, then popped it in with juice of an orange, lime and @bonafideprovisions bone broth (I left the peels in there). After pressure cooking, I pulled the pork and crisped it up in oven on broil with some extra seasoning and a touch of brown sugar for a few mins. I was pleasantly surprised with how good they turned out. Definitely the leanest and cleanest carnitas you’re gonna get!
dEATS...pork chop carnitas, roasted carrots, steamed broccoli, @lundbergfarms brown basmati rice, smashed avocado, @sietefoods habanero sauce
