Fall-apart-tender chunks of pork, sprinkled with cheese, drizzled with salsa and wrapped up in a nice corn tortilla. Add a couple of friends and a few beers (or margaritas!) and you've got yourself a fiesta!
I recently discovered Amy Wisniewski's Carnitas recipe on Chow.com, and I'm so thankful I gave her recipe a try. It's my new favorite recipe for carnitas tacos.
The recipe was part of Chow's collection of "No Fail Mexican Favorites," and they're pretty accurate in their description. It would be a challenge to mess up this recipe!
Of course, I couldn't resist throwing in a few chipotle peppers. The spicy, smokey flavor of chipotle goes really well with the pork.
So fire up the stove, call up a few friends and have yourself a delicious fiesta featuring these carnitas tacos!
