21 Day Fix Crockpot recipes. 21 Day Fix Fall and Winter Recipes.

This recipe is FOR SURE a keeper! I came across a recipe recently for pork carnitas and it immediately put me in the mood for some Chipotle, which got me thinking....I'm sure I could replicate a Chipotle Burrito Bowl at home!

Voila.....allow me to introduce you to my little friend! WARNING......guaranteed to tickle your taste buds and kick off a party in your mouth.  This recipe is quite versatile. You can make it with shredded beef, shredded chicken, even grilled steak.

Serves 4

Pork Carnitas Ingredients

2lbs pork loin (21 day fixers, this makes 8 portions. Measure out 4 ounces or 1 red container per serving and freeze the rest for later or refrigerate for next day leftovers)
Salt & Pepper
2 tsps dried oregano
2 tbsp chili powder
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 onion, coursely chopped
4 cloves garlic minced
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped finely
1 orange, cut in half

Additional Ingredients

1 head of Iceburg lettuce, shredded
1 cup cooked brown rice, I like the Minute rice cups you just throw in the microwave
1 cup black beans, from a can, rinsed
1 cup sweet corn
2 cups Hot Salsa
1/2 cup Guacamole
1.5 cups Non- Fat Greek Yogurt
2/3 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Jarred Jalapenos

To make the Pork Carnitas

Rinse and dry your pork loin. Salt & pepper liberally.
Mix all the spices together (Oregano through Cumin). Rub all over the pork
Place the pork in your crock pot. Top with chopped onion, garlic and jalapeno.
Squeeze over the juice of the orange and add the two halves.
Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4 hours.

Once the meat is tender, remove from the crockpot and let cool slightly before pulling apart with a fork.
