Carnitas:Set aside a crock pot or a large pot. Season the pork butt with Mexican Adobo Seasoning, Garlic, and black pepper. Massage seasoning into the pork butt. Place the pork butt into the crock pot and add 1 freshly squeezed lime, coke, and orange juice. Cook in crock pot for 3 to 4 hours, or until the meat is fully cooked.
After it has been completely cooked, remove the pork onto cookie sheet and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Shred the meat all around the cookie sheet and drizzle olive oil all over it. Add More adobe seasoning, salt, or black pepper if needed. Place the meat into the oven at 400 degrees F for about 12 minutes until the meat begins to crisp.
Remove the tray from the oven and the carnitas is ready.
Guacamole:Peel 3 Large Haas avocados and remove the pit. Place the Avocados into a large bowl and set it aside. Dice onion, cilantro, and jalepeno pepper; add it into the bowl with the avocados. Squeeze 1 and 1/2 fresh limes into the bowl. Add salt. Crumble in Queso Cheese into the bowl. Take a spoon or a spatula and mash everything together. Once the texture is smooth, it is ready

What is a good substitute for pork in this carnitas crockpot recipe?
By Holly from Richardson, TX
I would try beef, chuck roast or bottom round would turn out well. This would probably be good with dark meat chicken, too. I like the boneless, skinless chicken thighs for use in the crockpot. Don't have to worry about fishing out all the bones.
