Slow-Cooked Carnitas Tacos
2 lbs. of boneless country-style pork ribs cut into 1 ½ inch cubes
3 Tbsp Carne Guisada seasoning
1/2 large onion, cut into 4 pieces
1 jalapeno, diced
1 avocado, halved, pitted, sliced
fresh cilantro sprigs
1 small package of queso fresco cheese, crumbled
whole wheat tortillas
Toss pork into a Ziploc bag and add seasoning. Shake bag until meat is completely covered & add to slow cooker. Place onion pieces on top of pork. Cover slow cooker and cook pork on low setting until meat is very tender and falling apart, about 6 hours. When you have about an hour of cooking left, add diced jalapeno & stir.
The pork should shred easily with a spoon while still in the slow cooker. Heat tortillas. Sprinkle crumbled cheese in tortilla, place shredded meat on top. Top with avocado & cilantro.
