Pork Carnitas Burrito Bowls Black bean Cilantro Lime Rice topped with flavorful slow cooker pork carnitas and your favorite toppings for a mouthwatering (and healthy) dinner! Perfect for Cinco de Mayo!

Most of the time I seem to cook with chicken, but pork carnitas are a yummy change, and they are packed with flavor. Plus I love that I can make them in the slow cooker using a good size pork butt that will last us for several meals. I usually just freeze the extra for another night. You can make burritos, tacos or even nachos with them, or as I did, turn them into a Mexican bowl dish.

Cooking time varies by the weight of your meat.
This recipe makes enough rice for 4 servings, which means you will have leftover meat. I suggest combining the extra meat with some of the juices and freezing it for another day. If you are making for a larger crowd, increase rice recipe accordingly. If trying to plan out the number of people a certain weight of meat will feed, keep in mind that the pork butt will lose about 40% in weight in the cooking, and you want to allot 1/4 - 1/2 of meat per person combining it with the burrito bowls.
