Crispy Carnitas

In the canon of Mexican tacos, the carnitas tacos claims its rightful, indulgent place at the top. Those golden, crispy pieces of pork nestled in a warm corn tortilla — coupled with a bracing squeeze of lime and spoonful of creamy guacamole — are pure perfection. Rick takes us to Los Panchos, a Mexico City institution famous for carnitas, and to the vibrant Medellin Market to watch a popular carnitas vendor in action. In Chicago, Rick makes three versions — two achievable takes on the classic, plus a duck carnitas to dazzle your next dinner party.
