Cafe Rio Salad

So now that you've made tons of leftover meat from your Cafe Rio burrito's. Take it and make a delicious salad.

Flour Tortillas
leftover shredded pork/beef
lettuce or a bag of salad
tortilla strips
leftover rice and black/pinto beans
cheese (I used mozzarella)
cilantro dressing (recipe below)

Heat up flour tortillas they are best if they are crunchy so either put them in a skillet with some butter for a few minutes on each side or place in oven until they start to brown. Put all ingredients on top as if you were making the burrito (rice, beans, meat) then cover with lettuce or bag of salad, top with tortilla strips then cover with dressing and cheese as desired.

Cilantro Dressing

1 packet TRADITIONAL Hidden Valley Ranch mix (not BUTTERMILK)
1 c. mayonnaise
1 c. buttermilk
2 tomatillos, remove husk, diced (they look like green tomatoes, look by the peppers)
1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic
juice of 1 lime
1 jalapeno (if you like it spicy keep the seeds in it, if you like it mild remove the seeds)
blend all ingredients together... and voila! The picture doesn't make it look that great, but trust me it's scrumptious!
