Tex-Mex Carnitas Bowls


  • 1 package Azteca® salad shells
  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 2 cups cooked black beans
  • 2 cups Pico de Gallo
  • 3 cups cooked pork carnitas or pull BBQ pork
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 green onions, chopped


Bake salad shells per box instructions; set aside. In a medium bowl, toss the rice with the cilantro and orange zest. Build bowls by equally dividing ingredients into four bowls; rice, black beans and half of the Pico de Gallo. Add warmed pork and remaining Pico de Gallo. Sprinkle on cheese, a dollop of sour cream and top with green onions.
