Pork Burrito Salad

Our entire family LOVES Cafe Rio so when we found this recipe we
just had to try it out! ENJOY! Hmmmmmm

Cafe Rio Knock-Off Pork Burrito/Salad

Pork Burritos/Salad:
1 pork roast (shoulder approx 3-4lbs) or butt
2 cans coke
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 small cans of diced chilis
1 (14 OZ can of tomato sauce)
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin

Mix ingredients in crock pot. Add roast. Cook the night before on low for 6-7 hours. Shred pork the next morning, put back in crockpot and let marinade for 4-5 hours on warm.

Costco has a great uncooked tortillas. (pk of 40)
2-3 cans of black or pinto beans
2-3 cups of rice of your choice
1 can of green chili enchilada sauce
2-4 cups of mozzarella cheese (depends on if you like a lot of cheese inside and on top)

If you want to make a salad do not use the enchilada sauce and mozzarella cheese from above, instead add: 2 bags of greens

Cafe Rio Creamy Tomatillo Dressing:
1 cup mayo (full fat not light)
1 cup cilantro
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch Buttermilk Recipe Dressing
Mix 1/2 cup buttermilk
2 cloves garlic (minced)
3 tomatillos (quartered)

Mix all ingredients in blender until well blended. Chill before serving.

Don't forget tortilla strips for the top of the salad!(you can buy the tortilla strips in a bag at SMITHS in front of their deli meats.)
