Cafe Rio Pork

There's no such thing as Cafe Rio in Arkansas and that is unfortunate.  I've had to work on making my own version at home so that we can eat some delicious burritos.

1 3-4lb Pork Roast
1 coke
2 cups brown sugar
2-3 cups chunky salsa

Burrito Fixins:
shredded cheese
diced tomatoes
chopped onions
chopped cilantro
chopped green peppers
black beans
Your favorite taco sauce
Lime rice 

 Cover pork roast in water and cook in crock pot for 5-6 hours.
Let cool and shred.
The meat will still be warm so it's easiest if you shred it with gloves on and the meat tastes best if you wear cute gloves.  Well, that last part may not be true, but I wouldn't risk it.

Add pork to liquid mixture and cook for another 1-2 hours.

 Make white rice, add juice from 1 lime and some lime zest.
 It looks and smells amazing when it's done cooking.
 Cut up all of the fixins and set them out so your guests can build their own burrito.
 We prefer wheat tortillas at our house.
 The burrito bar is open for business!

 We made burrito bowls and burritos.
Both were equally delish.
 Enjoy a Cafe Rio inspired dinner at your house soon!
The leftovers are amazing too so make plenty.
