Carnitas Taco Kit for 4-6

This kit includes pasture-raised pork carnitas, black beans, guacamole, classic salsa verde, and fresh limes to squeeze over the top! It’s served with handmade tortillas made with organic heirloom corn from Oaxaca, Mexico.

Back in 1987, Chef Rick Bayless and his wife, Deann Groen Bayless, had just returned to Chicago from an extended stay in Mexico, where they had been researching their first book. They decided to open a restaurant that tasted and felt like their travels, so they hung colorful Mexican folk art on the walls, turned up the Mariachi music, and packed the menu with the foods that reminded them of their travels through Mexico. Frontera Grill was born, and it was an immediate sensation. Since then, Bayless has been nominated for a whopping 16 James Beard Awards and won seven, and Frontera Grill took the top prize, Outstanding Restaurant, in 2007. Frontera Grill remains one of the best and most legendary and influential Mexican restaurants in the country.
