Sweet Pork Burritos or Salad

This is the best stuff I have ever had!!! SOOOOOO Yummy! I've been wanting to make it ever since I had it this summer at our family retreat!! My sisters Jamie and Melinda had all the recipes, so I can't even take credit for them! There are a few different recipes so I'll just post them one at a time. You've got to try this one!!!

Sweet Pork
2 cans (4 oz. each) chopped green chilies
1 can (8 oz.) diced tomatoes
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. oregano
1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar (I used 1/2 cup)
1 boneless pork loin roast (2-2 1/2 pounds)
Place roast and all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 8-9 hours. Shred meat with a fork. Return to slow cooker for 30 minutes. DECLICIOUS!!

Lime Rice
2 cups chicken broth
1 1/4 cups calrose rice
1 clove garlic
grated lime rind
Juice from one lime and an little bottled lime juice
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
Cilantro to taste
Bring chicken broth to boil and add all ingredients. Lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes.

Tomatillo Ranch Dressing
(to DIE for!!!)
4-6 tomatillos
1 packet buttermilk ranch dressing
1 packet Hidden Valley Fiesta Ranch Dip
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
2 Tablespoons chopped garlic
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup mayonnaise
Peel husks off tomatillos and discard. Wash tomatillos and place in blender along with all remaining ingredients. Blend until a fine sauce forms. Chill until ready to serve.

Baked Tortilla strips
corn tortillas
scissors or pizza cutter
Rub oil onto hands, rub tortilla liberally on front and back. Cut into strips. Bake @ 350 for 5-7 minutes per side (or until crunchy). Put on cookie rack, cool completely and salt.

For Burritos:
Place lime rice, black beans (which I forgot...and we love black beans!), sweet pork, grated cheese and tomatillo dressing in tortilla and wrap like a burrito. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, tortillas strips and more tomatillo dressing if you like! SO GOOD!!!
For Salad:
(sorry no picture!)
Place sweet pork on a bed of lettuce. Sprinkle with lime rice, tomatoes, cheese, and black beans. Add tomatillo dressing and tortilla strips! Hope you ENJOY!!

If you want a quick version of the sweet pork. Add 1 cup of brown sugar to 1 cup salsa. We find that we like a little less sugar and a little more salsa! love it!
