Hankering for Cafe Rio?

Well, I guess you could always go to Cafe Rio. But if you want to stay home and still enjoy the masterful taste of sweet pork, here's the recipe. It's so darn easy for something so rewarding. You've also got to make the avocado-ranch dressing. Feel free to make a burrito or toss it all in a salad. Yum!


2 lbs. pork roast (I used center-cut pork loin roast)
1 1/2 c. salsa (I used Pace picante sauce)
1 1/2 c. brown sugar

Place roast in slow cooker. Mix salsa and brown sugar, and pour over roast. Cook on high for 6 hours or low for 10 hours. Shred pork.

1 avocado
Handful cilantro
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. lime juice
1 jalapeno, seeds and membranes removed
1/4 c. sour cream
1/4 c. mayonnaise
Half a packet of dry ranch dressing mix
Milk for thinning to desired consistency

Mix ingredients in a blender. Refrigerate before using so flavors can mix.
