Healthy Carnitas That Still Taste Ridiculously Good
Lightening up carnitas, the crispy pork filling you can pile into tortillas, can be tricky. That's because switching to a leaner protein, such as chicken, and skipping the usual frying can result in dried-out meat that lacks the rich flavor and soft texture of the original. Make chicken carnitas in a slow cooker, though, and you'll have fall-apart, succulent meat that's healthy, too.
