Well done, carnitas expert! This crock-pot method is perfect for pulled pork too. I used a shorter cooking time (12 hours) because a 4-pound shoulder is about the max from my supermarket. I also used less liquid with that smaller shoulder roast, but I stayed with the full 1-cup measure of cumin. (**ALWAYS leave the lid on a crock-pot. Don't stir it or peek just to see if its working. It is. Muster your will power!**) Chili peppers lose their heat with longer cooking, also when seeded. I add them near the end, maybe leave in the seeds if I really want heat. Or put out a bowl of minced jalapenos for people to sprinkle to taste. This Pico deGallo is top-drawer. Use it often. In place of salsas and other dips. Try this Pico for quesadillas.
