    RedVinoGirl's Note:

    This is a DELICIOUS and healthy way to make tacos carnitas! It's not spicy but the meat if fall-apart tender and flavorful! It's super easy to make. If you want it spicier, you may want to up the seasoning. Cooked as is, it's perfect for my kids to eat. I usually just spice up my individual taco to my liking. Enjoy! NOTE: If your crockpot cooks hot (like mine!) I cook this on low for 4 hours and it's PERFECT!
