This Chipotle copycat Whole30 carnitas bowl is a take on the Whole30 Chipotle favorite and is a fantastic Whole30 dinner, especially for warmer weather! I just can't think of a better way to eat Whole30 Mexican food. Sorry, Chipotle!

Make guacamole: combine all guacamole ingredients and mash, if desired, until desired consistency. Season with salt.
Heat your carnitas: Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add enough carnitas to cover the surface without crowding and ladle a little of the carnitas juice over. Cook until juice has evaporated and bottom of carnitas is crispy and browned. Flip and cook briefly, but not until too brown.
Layer your bowls: place a handful or two of romaine in the bottom of each serving bowl. Top with carnitas, guacamole, roasted tomatillo salsa, smoky guajillo salsa, and red onion. Serve immediately.
