Wash produce before use
Make the cabbage slaw
- Let the braised pork shoulder come to room temperature.
- Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.
- Peel and thinly slice enough red onion to measure 1 cup.
- Juice 1 lime.
- Cut the other lime into wedges for garnish.
Cook the carnitas
- In another medium bowl, sprinkle the pork with the carnitas spice blend. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine.
While the pork cooks, heat the tortillas.
Warm the tortillas
- Remove 12 tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.
Alternatively, on the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the 12 tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.
While the tortillas heat, prepare the garnishes.
Prep the garnishes
- Cut the avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pits, scoop out the flesh, and cut the flesh into ¼-inch-thick slices.
- Coarsely chop the cilantro.
- Juice the lime.
- Stir together the cabbage slaw.
- Arrange the tortillas for warming in the oven.
- Scoop out the avocados.
- Serve the meal.
