One of our Tex Mex favorites!
Shon keeps our Smokehouse cookin’. He’s got all that spice and pizzazz to keep things moving around here! And gets those delicious smoked meats out to into the world.
Carnitas literally means “little meats” and is an authentic dish in Mexican cuisine. These are made by braising or slow cooking pork until so tender the meat melts apart! In Mexico, carnitas are traditionally cooked outside in large pots over an open fire. For our pork carnitas, we take juicy pork butts mixed in our own unique blend of spices and smoked low and slow. Plan your fiesta today! And we make it easier with this ready-to-shred product.
Just throw in the oven or crockpot for juicy, flavorful pork that will just melt apart! Try it in tacos, enchiladas, chili, nachos, salads, tamales, burritos, tortas, and soups! Kids love these! With so many possibilities from breakfast to lunch to dinner, they will come running back for more! Breakfast is pork carnitas with eggs, cheese, and salsa. Lunch is street tacos with all your favorite toppings! Dinner is a hearty quesadilla with lots of carnitas, mushrooms, peppers, and so much melted cheese dipped in sour cream or guacamole!
