Carnitas Tacos

time to make

My Carnitas Tacos Recipe is set to elevate Taco Tuesday to a whole new level!

Dice the onion, then add it and the whole jalapenos to the bottom of a slow cooker.


Slice the pork into large cubes and rub them entirely with chili powder, oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cumin. Place the pork on top of the onions and peppers.


Squeeze the juice from a large orange over the pork, then pour in the olive oil.


Set the crockpot to LOW and cook 8 hours. Once cooked, remove the pork and shred it on a cutting board with a fork.


Optional: Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spread the pork out on a baking sheet, then bake for 8-10 minutes or until the tops start to crisp.


Strain the juices from the slow cooker, and pour the strained juices over the pork.


Begin assembling the tacos. First, warm or char the tortillas on a skillet. Once warm, top the tortillas with your favorite toppings!
