Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn

Recipes from Today's Show: Taco Night

Posted by

TODAY on MHTV: Tacos are a great weeknight meal since many of the components can be prepared in advance. Carnitas, slow-cooked pork browned in its own fat, make for a tender and crispy taco filling. Try topping the carnitas tacos with salsa cruda and set up a DIY taco bar with your other fav ingredients. Lastly, a Mexican-style dinner wouldn't be complete without homemade margaritas. More from the show.

  • i think you need to use less salt you are killing ppl with all that salt nancy

  • Hey, Made these carnitas last night.... Followed the recipe exactly, but the amount of salt used is ridiculous. Unfortunately, you could not taste the pork at all because the salt took over the entire flavor. WAY, way too much salt. So, if you decide to make these, maybe use 1 teaspoon of salt. The salt does intensify as the pork slowly cooks and by the time the water is nearly evaporated, the salt flavor is way over the top. Also, it takes way longer for the pork to become tender.

  • On 10/12/10,you had two recipes...one on taco's and the other on cooking chicken...I wrote both of them down while watching the show. I have cooked the taco dinner...and it was great. But somehow I lost the paper that I wrote it one.
    I would like to cook it tommorrow, as I brought all the ingredients...please if it is not too much trouble to email me all the different parts of the meal...Please...thank you!
