Carnitas

This was a delicious meal that I made a few weeks ago when my computer was down. The crisp, spicy meat was so versatile! I did so many things with it. For breakfast, I reheated it in the skillet and topped with eggs to make a scramble. For lunch, I added it to a bed of mixed greens. For dinner, I just ate it as it was.

If you are not a fan of spice, cut back on the jalapenos, or leave out all together.
