5 Dishes That Are 10 Times Better in a Slow Cooker
Go beyond chili and pulled pork. These unexpected foods become knock-your-socks-off good when you make them in a Crock-Pot.
Healthy Carnitas That Still Taste Ridiculously Good
Lightening up carnitas—the crispy pork filling you can pile into tortillas—is no easy feat, since switching to a leaner protein, such as chicken, and skipping the whole fried-in-oil step 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 tender, juicy meat that's healthy, too. This recipe, from Lick Your Plate
, by Julie Albert and Lisa Gnat, is destined to go on heavy rotation in our kitchen (and, we're guessing, yours, too).
