Healthy Carnitas That Still Taste So, So Good
Lightening up carnitas—the crispy pork filling you can pile into tortillas—can be tricky, 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 good for you, too.
