"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Pork-
Put the pork in a heavy duty ziploc bag to marinade. Add about a can and a half of coke and about 1/4 c. of brown sugar. Marinade for a few hours or overnight.

Drain marinade and put pork, 1/2 can of coke, water, and garlic salt in 12 oven for about 3-4 hours (or until it shreds easily, but don't let it get TOO dry). Remove pork from oven and drain any liquid left in the pot. Shred pork.

Blend 1/2 can Coke, chilies, enchilada sauce and remaining brown sugar (about a cup, you can add a little more or less to taste). If it looks too thick, add more Coke little by little.

Put shredded pork and sauce in crock pot and cook on low for 2 hours.

Rice-
In a sauce pan combine rice, butter, garlic, 1 tsp. lime, chicken broth and water. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook on low 15-20 minutes, until rice is tender. Remove from heat. In a small bowl combine lime juice, sugar and cilantro. Pour over hot cooked rice and mix in as you fluff the rice.

Black Beans-
In a skillet, cook garlic and cumin in olive oil over medium heat until you can smell it. Add beans, tomato juice, corn, and salt. Continually stir until heated through. Stir in the cilantro. Mix cornstarch with water. Stir until thickened.

Make pork, rice, and beans from above. Put pork, beans and rice in tortilla shells add onions if desired. Place a single layer of enchiladas in a pan, cover with cheese. Heat to melt cheese.
