Carnitas is a Mexican dish made of braised pork and can be eaten by itself (and tortillas, a chili sauce) or as the filling in tamales, tacos and burritos.
This quick healthy recipe uses poached chicken, chipotles in adobo, onions and red bell peppers. Serve on warmed corn tortillas and topped with shredded cheese and jalapenos.
I like to poach chicken breasts on Sunday, shred the meat and have it at the ready to use during the week. This is a favorite.
Fresh zucchini blossoms are sauteed in butter then placed in a tortilla and topped with avocado, Jack and Parmesan cheese.
