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

Ingredients:

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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOnce the meat is cooked through, pour in the beans.  Start smashing and smushing them.  The beans need to get dry – this can take anywhere from 8-12 minutes.  See below, how they’re sticking to the side of the skillet?  That’s a good thing.
