Margarita-Style Carnitas

Margarita-Style Carnitas is a fiesta for the senses! A splash (or two) of Tequila mixed with Margarita mix makes for a citrus kick and a great sauce base.

This dish is cooked in a big Dutch oven, and makes for several meals. Serve the carnitas as soft tacos, over rice, or share it with your family and friends.

Just a little spicy with a whole lot of southwestern flavor this dish is perfect Taco Tuesday’s and pot luck dinners. It’s cooked in a Dutch oven on the grill, which means you can socialize while the meal practically cooks itself.
