- 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

- 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
- 1. Cut roast in half; place in a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix broth, taco seasoning, parsley, garlic, pepper and salt; pour over roast. Cook, covered, on low 8-10 hours or until meat is very tender.

- 3. Spoon 1/2 cup pork mixture across center of each tortilla; add toppings as desired. Fold bottom and sides of tortilla 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.

Reviews for Slow-Cooked Pork Burritos
"It was just ok. Kind of bland."
"Love this. After I make burritos I melt queso cheese and pour over them."
"Oops, I meant a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles like Rotel. Drained, just a bit. Don't want too much liquid."
"Really good recipe. A little spicier helps boost the flavor. I added a finely chopped seeded jalapeno pepper and a bit of chili powder. I'm thinking of throwing in a can (small) of diced green chilis next time, as well. But we all loved it, especially the kids. A winner."
"The kids even ate it!"
"The pork cooked up nicely and shredded easily. Nice and tender, but could've used a bit more flavor for us."
"Wow! I am just starting to cook everyday and was looking for recipes that are not too difficult to make and finding some that taste great as well. This is a recipe that has filled those requirements. Has already been written down and put into my recipe book,will make many times, real easy to prepare."
