Directions:
TO PREPARE SWEET PORK
Place pork roast in the slow cooker. Add the Dr. Pepper, brown sugar, salsa, garlic powder, ground mustard, salt, and pepper to the pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Shred the pork with about an hour left of cooking time.
TO PREPARE CILANTRO RICE
In a medium or large saucepan over medium-high heat, add the water, butter, and bouillon. Then stir in the garlic, green chilies, cilantro, salt, onion, and rice.
Once mixture comes to a boil, cover and reduce heat to simmer. Cook on low for about 20 minutes. (Makes about 10 cups, so plenty for a side dish as well.)
TO PREPARE CAFE RIO CILANTRO RANCH DRESSING
In your blender, add milk, mayonnaise, dry dressing mix, prepared Ranch dressing, tomatillos (if using), cilantro, garlic, lime juice, and hot sauce. Blend until smooth. (Makes about 4 cups.)
ASSEMBLING CAFE RIO SWEET PORK BURRITO
On a tortilla, layer rice, pork, beans, and shredded cheese. Roll it up, tucking the ends inside and your roll. Cover with enchilada sauce and top with shredded cheese.
If desired, place burritos seam-down in a baking dish and bake in oven at 350 until heated through and cheese is melted.
ASSEMBLING CAFE RIO SWEET PORK SALAD
Start with a warmed tortilla, then layer rice, beans, salad, pork, shredded cheese, and cilantro Ranch dressing. Top with diced tomato, sour cream, guacamole, and other toppings, if desired.
