Pulled Pork Burritos
By Michelle Griggs NOMtasticEats
I found this recipe a longgg time ago and since then have adapted it perfectly to our taste buds! It gets requested incredibly often and every time I make it everyone goes back for seconds or thirds! It's def a crowd pleaser in this house and I can't wait for you to try it!! :)
FOR THE PORK
boneless pork roast
coke-a-cola (you can use coke zero but diet coke just doesn't taste the same!)
1 1/4 c
diced green chilis
red enchilada sauce (choose the heat depending on your taste buds, we don't like things very spicy so we used mild)
garlic powder (or 4 fresh cloves)
finely chopped onions
salt and pepper to taste
FOR THE GREEN SAUCE TOPPING
diced green chilis
green enchilada sauce
TO PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
flour tortillas (burrito sized)
cheese of your choice (we used cheddar)
black olives, onions and anything else you want to add to the top or inside of your burrito!
1Marinade your pork overnight in 1.5 cans of coke and 1/4 cup of brown sugar (i've also done it without the overnight marinade because I had forgotten to put it in and it still turns out delish just not as juicy!)
2The next day drain the pork and put it in a crock pot/slow cooker. Add 1/2 can of coke, 1/4 cup of water and a pinch of garlic salt to taste. Cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. (I did high and it was soooo incredibly moist and fall apart tender)
4In a blender add 1/2 a can of coke, one of the cans of green chilies, 10 oz of red enchilada sauce and 1 cup of brown sugar. Blend until smooth.
6While that is getting all happy get a sauce pan on the stove and add all of the ingredients for the green sauce to it. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low for 30 minutes. Put that off to the side.
7Once the meat is finished pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees.
Pull out your tortilla and pile as much or as little of the ingredients you have onto it. Tuck in both side of the tortilla and roll it up. Put some more cheese on top along with a scoop of the green chili sauce and put in the oven and let it get hot and melty - takes about 7-10 minutes. Add sour cream and serve :)
