Spicy Carrot Carnitas
It may be in the middle of April Showers but it is never to early to celebrate CINCO DE MAYO!!!!
Mexican or Spanish food is always a winner for dinner in my house. These SPICY CARROT CARNITAS have now added another plant based Mexican dish that I can enjoy on a regular basis.
Full of Beta-Carotene Rich Carrots and slow cooked to perfection in an aromatic bath of chipotle peppers and taco seasoning. The citrus rich orange juice adds a sweet but savory flavor to the carrots which is only enhanced when sauteed to achieve the perfect amount of crispiness. The Avocado Cilantro Creme pairs well by providing a perfect cooling contrast to the SPICY heat of the Carnitas.
Packed full of nutrition, these Carnitas are a perfect substitute for the classic Mexican dish. A must have when Jackfruit is out of reach or you are just craving something different! Place them in a tortilla or on top of some Spanish rice. These Carnitas will surprise your taste buds!
