Crock Pot Pork Carnitas

We love Mexican food. I am sure I have mentioned that many times before, but we really do eat a lot of Mexican or Mexican inspired meals. We also have a lot of pork in the freezer. So, I love meals that are both Mexican and pork.
This recipe is adapted from a Taste Of Home recipe. The recipe calls for 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes. But we like it with a little more flavor and with a kick to it. So, I use Emeril’s seasoning in it. I use quite a bit, 1 tablespoon. I think this makes it so much better. I love Emeril’s seasoning and I think it makes this recipe better. But you can make it like the recipes says and it will be fine just a different flavor.
