  • 2 1/2 teaspoons table salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 cup water of roses
  • 4 tomatillos, cut into cubes
  • 4 red tomatoes, roma cut into cubes
  • 1 white onion, small dice
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 serrano peppers, chopped
  • 1/3 cups fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1 lime, juice
  • 1 orange juice, big
  • 1 lemon, juice
  • 1/4 cups lard
  • 1 raja cinnamon, rajita, 1 inch
  • 2 avocados from Mexico, crushed
  • 12 corn tortillas


Place the pork in a large, sturdy pot and season with 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1 teaspoon of pepper.
Add 1 cup of water. Cover the pot but leave them barely open on one side.
Let it boil at a temperature just above the average for about 20 minutes or until all the water evaporates.
Do not touch the meat while steaming.
In a medium bowl, mix tomatillos, tomatoes, white onion, garlic, mountain chiles, cilantro, olive oil, oregano, 1 lime juice, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon. Pepper.
Stir well to mix and taste if salted.
Cover the bowl and reserve the mixture.
In a cup, mix the freshly squeezed orange juice and 1/2 lemon juice. When the carnitas water has evaporated, add the juice mixture and let it cook.
When all the juice evaporates, remove the lid, add the lard and the cinnamon stick.
Cook the pork until it is well browned and turn it over as necessary.
Remove it from the oil with a slotted spoon and place it on a plate covered with paper napkins.
Let it cool slightly before cutting the meat and place it in a tray with a lid.
In a small bowl, mix the avocados, the remaining lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
Stir well and taste if salted.
Heat the tortillas on a large or comal grill and keep them warm in an omelette heater or wrap them in aluminum foil. Serve the tacos with salsa and fresh avocados.
