Cafe Rio Sweet Pork

by Marie

6 lbs pork or beef
1 16 oz bottle of salsa
1 can of Coke
2 cups brown sugar
Place meat in crock pot and fill it half way up to the meat with water. Cook on high for 5 hours. Drain off water. Cut meat in thirds. Mix together sauce ingredients and put on top of meat. Cook an additional 3 hours on high. Shred meat with fork.

(I didn't like the rice plain but in the burrito it was sooooo good)
1 lb regular rice (2 1/4 cup)
1 bunch of fresh cilantro
Juice of 2 limes
4 cloves garlic
Chop garlic and cilantro. Heat 2 Tlbs of oil in a skillet. Add rice, garlic and cilantro. Saute 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add 4 cups of water and lime juice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.

1 packet HIdden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup Mayo
3 Tomatillos (I can never find fresh so I use canned found in the mexican food section at most stores)
2 cloves garlic
1 cup fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Blend all ingredients in a blender and refrigerate a few hours so flavors can blend

*This makes a ton, so invite company over when you make it!
