Seasoned with our lively salsa verde, cumin and chili powder, these tasty Texas-style carnitas tacos are easy to make and perfect for everyday dinner or special gatherings. Simply add the pork to your slow cooker and that low and slow braise allows it to get tender and juicy and absorb all of the fabulous flavors – did we mention how delicious our salsa verde is? The shredded pork gets topped with a crunchy slaw made with our salsa verde and cilantro then it’s a wrap.
