Cafe Rio Salads

There are a ton of Cafe Rio recipes out there, I like these the best. You can use these for burritos, or for the famous salad. Serve in a warm tortilla, with shredded lettuce, pico, avocado, cheese, etc. We are having these for dinner tonight! YUM!

Cafe Rio Pork:

5ish pound pork roast
12 ounces taco sauce
1 tbsp. cumin
1 cup brown sugar
20 ounces Coke (not diet)

Place roast in crock pot and cover about half way with water. Cook 12 hours on low. Drain off at least half of water/drippings (I drain almost all of it), and add remaining ingredients. Cook on low another 6 hours.

Cafe Rio Rice:

2 cups rice
4 cups water
4 chicken bullion cubes (I use a few scoops of better than bullion)
1 tsp cumin
6 green onions chopped
6 sprigs cilantro chopped

Put all ingredients in rice cooker, cook on until liquid is absorbed

Cafe Rio Tomatillo Dressing:

1 packet hidden valley buttermilk ranch
1 cup mayo
1 cup buttermilk
3-4 tomatillos
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. lime juice
handful cilantro

Put all ingredients in blender, blend until smooth. Chill before serving, the longer you chill the the thicker the dressing will be.
