TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 8 hours YIELD:14 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork sirloin roast (3 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 envelope reduced-sodium taco seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 14 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • Optional toppings: shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, chopped green pepper, guacamole, reduced-fat sour cream and shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

Directions

  • 1. Cut roast in half; place in a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the broth, taco seasoning, parsley, garlic, pepper and salt. Pour over roast. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until meat is very tender.
  • 2. Remove pork from the slow cooker; cool slightly. Shred with two forks; set aside. Skim fat from cooking liquid; stir in beans and chilies. Return pork to the slow cooker; heat through.
  • 3. Spoon 1/2 cup pork mixture down the center of each tortilla; add toppings of your choice. Fold sides and ends over filling and roll up.
  • 4. To freeze burritos: Roll up burritos without toppings. Wrap individually in paper towels, then foil. Transfer to a resealable plastic bag. May be frozen for up to 2 months. To use frozen burritos, unwrap foil. Place paper towel-wrapped burritos on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes or until heated through. Serve with toppings of your choice. Yield: 14 servings.
