Carnitas Lettuce Cups
This recipe is perfect for your fat burning diet. I have detailed instructions on how to make Rick Bayless' recipe for carnitas shown below. Not only is this great for just enjoying on one's own, but I have found that bringing carnitas to a potluck is always a huge hit.
- Pork carnitas - cooked using Rick Bayless' recipe from Mexico - One Plate at a Time.*
- Romaine or butter lettuce - whole leaves
- Garnishes - crumbled queso fresco, cilantro, tomatoes, pico de gallo, avocado chunks, guacamole, onions, salsa fresca or anything else you desire
Now you add the carnitas and whatever garnishes you desire.
You might find you have some leftover carnitas. Perfect for a quick breakfast.
