Pork Carnitas and Refried Beans

Yesterday for breakfast, I was craving carnitas and beans.  My teen saw what was up and he stuck around.  He knows what’s good!


Pork chop, I typically use 1/2 chop per person (cut up into bite sized pieces)

Canola oil (or lard, if you are my mom), maybe 4 tbsp.

1 can of Bush’s pinto beans (unless your mom gives you some homemade), drained

Tortillas (the best ones are the ones my mom makes)


Heat canola oil in small skillet; when it’s shimmery hot, add the pork.
