One of the most traditional Mexican dishes, it's basically pieces of pork shoulder fried in a mixture of lard and Mexican Coca-Cola, and mixed w/ orange juice, lime peels, onions, and bay leaves. The meat is crispy on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside. It is usually served w/ yellow rice, refried black beans, corn tortillas, and pickled onions, and a salsa verde is served on the side as well.
Today I went to the taqueria for lunch and had some carnitas. They were really delicious.

Beautiful and loving. Sometimes Carnita is stubborn and believes in her own ways and not others but means no harm, only love and believes her ways strongly. Carnita graces everyone she is around with her beauty and Intelligence. She needs to be loved strongly and she will serve you for life.

Guys Friend: oh wow you probably met Carnita
