    chocoholic in AZ's Note:

    This is a good basic recipe for pork Carnitas in the crock pot. A good throw it in the crock pot and forget about it recipe. This recipe is without any "heat" so my 2 year old can enjoy it too. If you want the spicier version just add some of your favorite hot peppers diced up to the mix in the crock pot. I serve this on toasted corn tortillas shells with home-made guacamole, cilantro, diced green onion, cheddar cheese and green salsa Verde.

      I made & served this as indicated in the recipe, using another chef's Authentic Fresh Guacamole, & IT'S GREAT TASTING! Next time, though, I'll wrap the whole thing in a soft home-made tortilla before serving! Thanks for a great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in the current Pick A Chef]
