Pork Burritos Recipe

As a working mother, I depend on my slow cooker to help feed my family. We all love the spicy but slightly sweet flavor of these tender burritos. —Kelly Gengler, Theresa, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 8 hours YIELD:10 servings


  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, undrained
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 10 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • Sliced avocado, sour cream and minced fresh cilantro, optional


  • 1. Cut roast in half; place in a 5-qt. slow cooker. In a blender, combine the tomatoes, chili powder, garlic, lime juice, honey, jalapeno and salt; cover and process until smooth. Pour over pork. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until meat is tender.
  • 2. Remove roast; cool slightly. Shred pork with two forks and return to slow cooker. Using a slotted spoon, place about 1/2 cup pork mixture down the center of each tortilla; top with avocado, sour cream and cilantro if desired. Fold sides and ends over filling and roll up.
    Freeze option: Omit avocado, sour cream and cilantro. Individually wrap cooled burritos in paper towels and foil; freeze in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, remove foil; place paper towel-wrapped burrito on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes or until heated through, turning once. Let stand 20 seconds. If desired, serve with sliced avocado, sour cream and cilantro. Yield: 10 burritos.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"This was so tasty, and it was really easy. I did lower the chili powder to 3 tbsp and added an extra tbsp of lime juice, and I didn't have jalapenos but I'm not a huge spicy fan so that was fine with me. Topped with sour cream and shredded cheddar, delicious!"
