FOR THE MASSES
Based in California and rooted in Mexico, we’re honored to make our traditional family recipes available to restaurants, grocery stores, schools, and hospitals. In fact, food service is where we got our start. After opening our first grocery store in 1981, word of mouth grew and we began delivering our famous homemade sopes, salsas, and slow-cooked meats to organizations all over the region.
Carnitas, a type of slow cooked pork, are a household staple in the Mexican kitchen. Its unique and authentic texture and flavor is rooted in the traditional cooking methods from Michoacan. Richly seasoned and slow braised, Carnitas make a flavorful and filling main course, but they are also used as ingredients in many other authentic Mexican dishes like tamales, tacos, tortas and burritos. Carnitas are traditionally served accompanied by cilantro, salsa and refried beans.
