store bought favorite: frontera garlicky carnitas slow cook sauce with lime + chipotle









I was confident we'd LOVE our carnitas after trying frontera's red chile barbacoa slow cook sauce.  These packets are amazing and make dinner a cinch PLUS they are all natural with no preservatives.  The ingredients are simple and the flavor enormous.  I picked my packet up at our new grocer in town- Natural Grocers for about $2.29.

store bought favorite: frontera garlicky carnitas slow cooker sauce with lime + chipotle
 2 pounds pork, sliced or cut into large chunks
1 pouch frontera garlicky carnitas slow cooker sauce
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon oil

Preheat oven to 325 F.  Heat oil over high heat in a 4-quart Dutch oven.  Add pork; cook until browned on all sides.  Stir in sauce and 1 1/2 cups water.  Cover tightly; put in oven.  Bake until fork tender, usually 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
Skim fat from pan juices.  Use a fork to pull meat into large shreds.  Mix meat with pan juices.  Season to taste with salt.  Serve in warm tortillas with chopped cilantro and guacamole or whatever your heart desires.
