Slow cooker recipes are all the rage now-a-days. There are so many recipes out there, but not many Mexican ones in our opinion. Being the Mexican food lovers that we are, we decided to reinvent our pulled pork slider recipe and turn it into a burrito! It was a great idea because the result was one outrageous burrito! This is great option if you had leftovers from our Pulled Pork Sliders recipe. You will not only love the pork, but will adore our sour cream sauce too! Enjoy and let us know if you make it. We love to hear from our followers!
Ingredients for the Pulled Pork:
1.5 - 2 pound boneless pork tenderloin
16 oz of tomato sauce
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
3 teaspoons of paprika
2 teaspoons of cumin
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon of white wine, red wine or champagne vinegar
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
8 oz can of Coca Cola or Pepsi
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 cup of white wine or cooking wine
Ingredients for the Burrito:
4 burrito-sized flour tortillas
1 can black or pinto beans
1 tomato, chopped
1 cup of shredded cheese
1 cup of sour cream
1 tablespoon of cilantro
2 cups of Cabbage or lettuce
Cook the pork in the slow cooker using the instructions from our previous post (Click here). Once the pork is ready all you have to do is assemble the burrito! How easy is that?
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Wrap the flour tortillas in aluminum foil and heat in the oven for about 5 minutes to soften them up and make then easier to work with. While the tortillas are heating, mix the sour cream, juice of 1/2 a lemon and the chopped cilantro in a bowl. This mixture has tons of flavor and is a perfect match for this burrito.
Lay the heated tortilla on a wood board and put about 2 tablespoons of the bbq pulled pork. Try to strain any sauce or liquid from the pulled pork to avoid the tortilla getting soggy. Add about 2 teaspoons of the beans of your choice, a small handful of cabbage or lettuce, a small handful of shredded cheese, a teaspoon of chopped tomatoes and lastly, a teaspoonful of the cilantro sour cream mixture. Try not to over fill you burrito, this will make it harder to close.
Fold the top and bottom of the flour tortilla inward (as pictured above). Next, begin to roll the burrito. Grab the right side of the tortilla and fold to the left. Continue to roll to burrito to the left, trying to make it as tight as possible. Don't get discouraged if it doesn't come out perfect the first time. It takes a few times to figure out how to make the perfect burrito.
Cut you burrito in half and serve with corn tortillas and spanish rice or a side salad! Enjoy!
