Slow Cooker Smothered Sweet Pork Burritos sound absolutely delicious! Cook the pork all day in the slow cooker all day and then you assemble the burritos and bake when it’s time for dinner.
For Friday Favorites we feature past recipes you may have missed, and these Slow Cooker Smothered Sweet Pork Burritos from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe sound like a perfect Back-to-School dinner idea! As soon as I say Sweet Pork Burritos you probably think of Cafe Rio, especially if you live in Utah. But Mel makes it clear that these Slow Cooker Smothered Sweet Pork Burritos are different from Cafe Rio’s sweet pork. But she adds that these burritos are also “very, very amazing,” and they certainly look amazing to me.
This recipe cooks the pork in the slow cooker all day; then you shred the meat and add other seasonings, assemble the burritos with Cilantro Lime Rice (recipe included), cover with sauce and cheese in a casserole dish, and bake for a few minutes. Sounds like a must-try dinner to me!
