This is one of my favorite recipes. It takes some thinking in advance to start it early in the day but I make a big batch to last us several days.

I think substituting green chiles would make a completely different end-product, though probably a good one. One can of chipotles is to much so I always use a bit and freeze the rest.

Tonight we are having carnitas for "diet" food (Slow Carb--->4 Hour Body). I l %u2665 ve it! DH and I will have it with refried beans, avocado, lettuce and tomato & salsa on top. The kids will have it with cheese on taco shells.

Thanks for this recipe...a staple and a keeper!!

At first I felt it tasted a little too "different" (husband liked it though) -but the next day, I used the carnitas to make tostadas with refried beans, lettuce, tomatoes,, chopped onion & cheese - and it was wonderful, out of this world. I will definitely make this quite often - for company or just for us... Yum!

This was delicious! I didn't use the chipotle chiles or the adobo seasoning because I didn't have any on hand, so I substituted a can of green chiles. Worked wonderfully. Thanks Katie!

This was VERY easy to make and just as easy to eat. I added 2 sliced jalapenos with the seeds and the whole can of chipotle chilies in adobo and extra garlic. After it was all done, and cooled off, I packed it in Foodsaver bags and put it in my freezer to eat throughout the month. Thank you for an excellent recipe.

This was so easy. I love preparing and eating (mostly the eating part) Hispanic foods. Made this using a pork loin roast. Used the Carnitas for burritos and as a meat dish with rice. Was absolutely wonderful!
