Cafe Rio Style Burrito

6 pounds pork butt/shoulder (I just use a Roast)
1 19 oz. can Red Enchilada Sauce
8 burrito style tortillas
1 can Dr. Pepper
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Garlic Salt
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tbsp. cilantro (I used the dried, but you can use fresh as well)
*toppings for burrito - black or pinto beans, rice, and any other wanted toppings. 

Put pork in crock pot with 1/2 cup water bake for 5 hours or until tender enough to shred. Pull the meat out and let cool for 30 minutes then shred. In separate bowl, mix the enchilada sauce, dr. pepper, salt, garlic salt, brown sugar and cilantro. Pour 1/2 of the mixture over the meat and mix. Put your toppings rice, beans, etc into tortillas and top with meat mixture fold burrito and place in casserole dish. Pour the remaining mixture plus about 1 lb of cheese over top and bake at 350 for 10 minutes or longer if desired. (until cheese is melted).

That looks really good, I was confused when I saw Dr. Pepper though.

You need the yummy rice to go with it!
2 Tbsp. oil
4 c. long grain rice (6 c. water)
1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
juice of 2 limes
2 tsp. crushed garlic
Heat oil in a large skillet. Add rice, cilantro, and garlic. Saute 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add water and lime juice and bring to boil. Then reduce heat and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed by the rice (about 20 minutes). You can also use a rice cooker if you have one.

Thanks Kelli I'll definitely have to try that in it next time. Tiff it was really odd to have Dr. Pepper in the ingredients but trust me it works and it's so good!
