Easy Café Rio


Café Rio Pork

3-4 lb pork butt
1 cup salsa
1 cup brown sugar

Place the pork butt in the crock pot. In a seperate bowl, mix the salsa with the brown sugar, then add on top of the pork. Cook all day in the crock pot (on Low setting) then shred the meat when it's done.

Use as a taco meat or with cilantro lime dressing, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes.

Café Rio Cilantro Lime Dressing

1 1/3 cups sour cream
3/4 cup mayo
1 bunch of cilantro (chopped)
1 pkg ranch dressing mix (dry)
4 tbsp salsa verde (green salsa)
2 cloves of garlic
1/8 tsp. Tabasco sauce
juice of one lime (I like to add lime zest, too)

Mix together in a blender and serve on top of Café Rio pork.

Want to make it low-fat? Use light sour cream and light mayonnaise!

You can substitute boneless, skinless, chicken breasts for the pork. Cook it in the slow cooker (with the salsa and brown sugar) for 7-9 hours on low.

Delicious!
