I’ve tried a lot of pork taco recipes. A lot. And these Crispy Slow Cooker Carnitas are by far my favorite pork taco filling!
The flavors are fabulous, and I love the crispy edges on the pork. I also love that this pork filling isn’t so soggy and wet that my tortillas turn to mush. Whatever you do, don’t skip the broiling step. It just wouldn’t be carnitas without all those delicious crunchy bits.
You can use any of your favorite taco toppings, but some fresh squeezed lime juice is definitely a must! And here’s a handy tip: you can freeze your leftover chipotles in adobo. I just put two or three (I can’t imagine ever using more than that in a single recipe) into small, zip-top bags and freeze them to use later.
My husband and kids also proclaimed this their favorite pork taco filling, so we’ll definitely be making it again.
