The air fryer is a fantastic tool for reheating leftover carnitas. Cooking at high heat for just two or three minutes ensures the pork stays juicy, but also develops an enjoyable crisp too. Be careful not to overcook and dry out the carnitas!

We recommend investing in a kitchen thermometer like the Habor Meat Thermometer to ensure your food is thoroughly cooked. It's quick, under twenty bucks and it's waterproof - and hey - we get a small referral fee for any purchases.
