Hosting a New Year’s gathering and still trying to think of something easy to make and serve?  We recommend carnitas!  After all, not all parties are meant to be formal, especially given today’s climate for more stress-free, casual dinning options.

Carnitas are a perfect “set and forget” crock-pot recipe that can be served for a meal or a grazing party dish – not to mention the toppings like tomatoes, guacamole and queso fresca create a plate full of festive colors.  Here’s a great slow-cooker carnitas recipe from AllRecipes.com.  Then, look no further than La Tortilla Factory’s Hand Made Style Corn Tortillas or our new Smart & Delicious Fiber & Flax Corn Tortillas as the perfect tortilla options for this unique and colorful holiday meal.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year 2012 from all of us at La Tortilla Factory!
