Taste of Home Slow-Cooked Carnitas

Good slow cooker recipes are often hard to come by, so I jump on any new options I find. This recipe is a double bonus since it involves pork, a family favorite. I was readily able to find all the ingredients at my local Kroger, and the prep time was short and easy. I love being able to throw everything in the crock-pot in the morning and not have to worry about it until dinner time. 

I did make a few changes to the original recipe. I used chicken broth instead of tequila, didn't want to have to run to the liquor store. Additionally, I substituted flour tortillas for corn, since we already had them on hand. The corn tortillas had a better texture and tasted delicious. 

Both my kids and my husband liked this recipe and I have even heated up the leftovers again in the slow cooker and they still tasted great. I would definitely recommend this slow cooker recipe as a easy, worry-free meal idea.
