This was excellent....easy and extremely flavorful. I followed my mom's (Naples 34102) recommendations in that I doubled the spices, left the cinnamon out, and put the meat in the oven afterwards for a bit to crisp it up.
I prepared this meal "Burrito Bowl" style for those who are familiar with Chipoltle and Qdoba restaurants. I made a cilantro lime rice with butter, and then layered it with seasoned pinto beans, the carnitas, fresh homemade salsa, fresh chopped lettuce, shredded Jack cheese, and sour cream. Both my husband and I thought this was every bit as good as a restaurant's "Carnitas Burrito Bowl", only MUCH fresher tasting! We are looking forward to eating the leftovers tonight!
