I've never had carnitas filling before (I think), so the recipe came out a bit bland...BUT with other's recommendations, I revamped the recipe with 1 teaspoon of cumin, 2 TBSP adobo seasoning, a shake of red crushed peppers, 1 TBAP Sazon de Coxa con Achoite, 1 TBSP turmeric, 2 TBSP garlic powder, 3 low sodium beef broth cubes and when finished squeeze lime over top and sprinkle w/x-tra adobo seasoning. This made a world of difference. I made my own refried beans and added this meat mixture to the burrito as a filling with cheese. Froze these to make as a quick meal for kids/husband over summer.
