Pork Carnitas with homemade Corn Tortillas


It has been a while since I made a Mexican dinner.  The reason being,  I was having trouble finding masa harina flour in my local grocery stores.   Remembered to pick up a bag when I was in Victoria earlier this week.  Homemade corn tortillas are so much better than those found in the grocery store.

A pork shoulder was rubbed with lots of fresh garlic, salt, pepper and dried chipotle  pepper and placed in a cast iron dutch oven, covered and slow roasted for about 3 hours until fall apart tender.
Earlier in the day I put a pot of pinto beans on to simmer.  They were suppose to be served as a side.  But instead, they will be used  in tonight’s dinner.  A seven layer dip.

Topped with homemade roasted tomato salsa, fresh lime and cilantro.
