Easy Pork Carnitas


Easy Slow Cooker Carnitas

Carnitas are a classic taco filled with tender, succulent slow-cooked pork. Requiring minimal prep, the meat gently simmers while you do other things. When it's done, simply fill into warm tortillas, pile high with toppings and enjoy!


  • 1 (4-5 pound) pork shoulder, excess fat trimmed, cut into 3 inch chunks
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 medium white onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp chipotle powder (or 1 canned chipotle in adobo finely chopped)
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt


Add all ingredients to a large slow cooker, and stir. Cook on low for 6-8 hours until the pork is fork tender.

Use a slotted spoon to transfer the pork to a large bowl, reserving the juice. Using a utensil (or your fingers), gently bread the pork into bite-sized pieces.  Spoon some of the juices over to moisten.

Fill into warm tortillas and add desired toppings, including Food for Thought Cherry Fireball Salsa

Suggested toppings:

  • chopped white onion
  • crumbled cotija or feta cheese
  • Mexican crema or sour cream
  • fresh cilantro leaves
  • thinly sliced jalapenos
  • sliced radish
  • diced avocado
  • lime wedges
