I took the trimmings from the spare ribs I made yesterday and crisped them up in a skillet. Toasted some corn tortillas, spread a little chipotle puree on the tortilla and topped with some guacamole, cabbage, green onions, jalapeno and cilantro.

Always wanted to try some carnitas on the grill/smoked. They/we sell them around here in the meat department, labeled as such (carnitas). Can't believe I work for HEB, and have never thrown any of these on.

Looks like some delicious tacos! Great topping/condiment idea there.

Great idea! Those look really good.
Did you make your own chipotles or was it from a can? I plan on smoking my own this summer, just need a good adobo sauce recipe.
Points for a great idea, that's one going on the to-do list.

Man, that is a great looking pile of carnitas you've got going on. Are you sure you're not from the SouthWest, Your taste buds are pointing in that direction. It's all good, thanks for sharing my friend.

I used canned chipotle and blend them up with a stick blender. One of my favorite ways to make them is to blend a couple of cans with a block of guava paste. You only get a hint of guava and a little sweetness as the chipotles are so strong but it works really well.

I have made them myself with dried chipotle but it takes a while to clean them and soak them. I've been thinking of smoking some jalapenos and really making my own now that I have a smoker.

Chipotle dude. I like that!

From the south not southwest. I have family in Mexico City and they eat a lot of chipotle. I will bring back bags of moritas when I visit in Mexico. I'm sure you know of moritas. Smaller than the smoke jalapeno. Little red chiles that are smoke. I find them a little spicier than the larger smoked jalapenos.

Looks tasty. I was going to post my carnitas thread here, but right before I did I saw yours. Mine is different, but I guess there' sno need for two posts about carnitas right now.

Keep on cookin!

OH MAN! That looks good. I love carnitas. Did you fry them in the pan with oil? How did you crisp up the meat. Looks great!

I added no oil. I let the little bit of pork fat work for me.
