Cafe Rio pulled pork burrito- Enchilada Style

Tonight I braved Cafe Rio's pulled pork burrito's. I am always hesitant to invite company over for dinner when I haven't tried the recipe before but I did it anyway and they thought it was really yummy. I made 2 pounds of shredded pork and there was none left over. That's always a good sign. I used the recipe from Family Favorite Recipes. I put pulled pork, black beans and garlic and herb instant rice, from a box, inside the burrito. Then I rolled it up, poured green mild enchilada sauce on top, sprinkled some mozzarella cheese on top and put my burrito in the broiler for about 2 minutes. Everyone loved the enchilada style burritos. I think I'm going to make this again soon. Pictured below is the pulled pork in the crock pot. I like to use Reynold's crock pot bags. If you have not used them before, I would recommend using them. It makes cleaning the crock pot 10 times easier.You can get crock pot bags here.


  1. Love it! I've made something similar once in the past, but it's been a long time. I should try yours out! :)

  2. It tasted pretty close to Cafe Rio. I think drizzling it in enchilada sauce and cheese and sticking it in the broiler is what made it so good.

  3. I was a little hesitant about Char's re-creation of the Cafe Rio dish but it was really good. And, enchilada style didn't cost you two dollars extra!
