Is Taco Tuesday a thing in your household? It sure is in ours. We all love tacos, whether it’s traditional beef tacos, fish tacos, chicken tacos, or these slow cooker carnitas tacos. The fact that you make these in the slow cooker saves you time and effort; start them in the morning and they’ll be ready for dinner!
In a hectic and fast-paced holiday season, home-cooked meals can fall by the wayside. Intentionally gathering my family around the table, and preparing a healthy and delicious meal, is one way of taking back control of this busy season and remembering what’s really important.
With this in mind, I went to Food Lion to purchase a Smithfield Marinared Fresh
Smithfield Marinated 100% Fresh Pork is a delicious, easy meal solution, that brings “Real Flavor Real Fast” to your dinner table. It is available in Loin Filets, Tenderloins, and Roasts across a variety of flavors.
It’s hard to even call this a “recipe”, because it was just so easy. I put my Smithfield Seasoned Carnitas into my slow cooker and added 1/2 cup of water. I cooked it on low for 6 hours, until it was fork tender and shredded easily.
I love that Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is slow-marinated and seasoned right in the bag. Being able to put the Smithfield Seasoned Carnitas into the slow cooker and not have to worry about it is exactly my idea of the perfect dinner, especially during this busy time of year.
Once the pork is shredded, just bring it to the table along with your toppings. In addition to the Avocado Cilantro Dressing, we shredded a block of queso, put out pico de gallo, cilantro, extra lime slices and dinner was served.
Love Mexican-inspired food? We have a couple more recipes that I think you and your family will love…
This Greek Guacamole Dip is amazing! My whole family devoured it!
Easy Chicken Burrito Bowls are fast, healthy and delicious! You can customize the ingredients to you and your family’s tastes.
Thanks for reading all about how we celebrate Taco Tuesday with Slow Cooker Carnitas Tacos! Have a lovely day!
