Nacho Supreme Bake ~~So Easy~~

My kids LOVE this recipe... not too spicy but a bit of kick!  When they request to go to the local taco joint I offer to make this instead...its always greeted with enthusiasm!!

Believe it or not, I had never made carnitas before this. I have no idea why, given that Mexican food and braised meat are 2 of my favorite things ever.
