Recipe Notes

My kids love these carnitas just the way they are or I put them in a low carb tortilla or some crispy corn tortilla boats.  They love those!  My son loves his with sour cream and olives. 

Sometimes I'll make them a little plain white rice and put the carnitas on top when they are not feeling like tacos.
