Tasty Tuesday: Sweet Pork Burritos

Mmmmmm. Isn't this making you hungry? Of course, my presentation could be better. But we were hungry, and the kids weren't going to wait for me to make it pretty. (Besides, it was already almost 8:00 at night, which is really late for dinner for kids.)
Start by preparing your pork. Combine 1 cup of brown sugar with 1 cup of salsa (any kind) in your crockpot. We even mixed the last of a bottle with the last of some homemade. You probably want to use whatever kind you like best.

Add your pork. I was told to use a pork roast, but I like using these thick cut boneless chops because they cook faster and shred better. Whatever cut of meat you have is fine.

Cook until the meat shreds. These chops only took 2 hours.
Then prepare a spanish or mexican rice, any type, any brand or homemade. I use whatever brand is on sale, and prepare 2 packages for my family. Add black beans, canned or homecooked (we use 2 cans), mozzarella cheese, green enchilada sauce and flour tortillas. Have tomatoes, sour cream, and salsa, etc to serve with.

Assemble burritos with meat, cheese, beans, and rice on a tortilla. Drizzle a little enchilada sauce and roll up.

Now, if I wanted it all pretty, I'd make a bunch, lay them in the pan, top with more enchilada sauce and cheese, and throw it in the oven for a few minutes to heat and melt the cheese. But, we didn't take time for that, so the burritos got rolled right on the plate. My kids don't like the enchilada sauce, so theirs looked a little plain. But I threw mine in the microwave (to melt the cheese) right after this:
Top with your favorite garnishes: chopped tomatoes, fresh salsa, sour cream, etc. and Enjoy!
