Pulled Pork Burrito
Quite possibly the best burrito you'll ever have! If I ever saw this on a menu I'd order it in a second. What an awesome twist on the traditional meat filling in a flour tortilla. And if you've got a slowcooker, it's a breeze to do.
My husband put a pork shoulder in the slowcooker and then dumped a jar of green salsa in with it. He cooked it for 8 hours – the meat literally fell off the bone. After removing the fat and bones he stirred it up. It would have been fine as is, but my husband chopped up some cucumber and cilantro to go with it. Heat the tortillas and top with the pulled pork, cucumber, cilantro, shredded cheddar and sour cream. A fresh green salad, refried beans and tortilla chips were served alongside. Amazing.
