Cafe Rio Pork Burrito (Enchilada Style)

If you don't live by a Cafe Rio, you are missing out! But there is good news, you can make your own at home, and it will taste just as good. The pork makes enough for two meals, so make burritos one day and a salad the next. Perfect left overs! You can find the ingredients for the salad here...


3 lb Pork Roast
1 can Dr. Pepper
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup salsa
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon  ground mustard
salt and pepper

Place pork in the crock pot. Then add all ingredients. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Shred pork with about an hour left to cook.

1 can black or pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 can red enchilada sauce
Mexican style cheese 


Do as much rice/water that you need for your family. I usually do three cups of both.
Once the water boils, add the rice and the following ingredients.
2 teaspoons chicken bouillon
2 garlic cloves-minced
1 can diced green chili's
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup chopped onion

When you are ready to make your burritos, just layer them. One layer of pork, then rice, then beans. Wrap your tortilla and place seam side down.   Cover burritos with enchilada sauce and sprinkle with cheese. Cook under the broiler until cheese is bubbly. Enjoy!
