Carnitas Tacos With A Delicious Apple Salsa DIY

Wow do these look good!  I like the apple salsa idea for fall.  I think it will make a nice change to have with tortilla chips as well.  Chicken or beef would taste just as wonderful.  The one thing I will do different is to use flour tortillas because I really don’t dig the corn variety.  Style at Home came up with this spicy recipe.

Ingredients
Carnitas

  • 2 tsp each: ancho chili powder, chipotle chili powder, cumin and fine sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 lbs boneless pork shoulder, cut into 3″ pieces
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, quartered
  • 4 garlic cloves, smashed
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 2 cups water

Apple salsa

  • 1 large sweet-tart red apple, such as Braeburn or Pink Lady, cored and finely diced
  • 6 green onions (white and pale green parts only), thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely minced
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • Juice of 2 limes
