One of my favorite “fast food” restaurants is Chipotle and if you’ve never been there, I highly recommend it. This copycat recipe is for their Carnitas and guess what else…it’s made in the crock pot! Super easy and tastes delicious. We love to eat this meat with corn tortillas or in burritos with some rice and beans. Enjoy!

  2. 1/8/16 – tastes NOTHING LIKE CHIPOTLE’s Carnitas – followed recipe completely – not even a hint of the flavor of Chipotle’s pork

  3. I love it! I’ve made it multiple times . Every time I make it,it’s liked more than chipotle . Even made it for my son’s grad party last year , it was a huge hit !
