Welp, I did it.
I said I would.
I made a Cafe Rio-ish dinner.
And guess what?
It was yummy day 1, day 2, day 3, and probably when I eat what's left of it on day 4.
(It made a lot and I have a little family).
Two things I changed.
1. We used this.
Even though I had to buy a 12-pack of caffeine free coke for $5 and was annoyed at it (instead of the $0.48 Big K with caffeine, off-brand coke)
-- I'm glad I did.
We're a non-drinkin' caffeine family-- why start now?
2. And where as I did add these little gross things as the recipe stated:
Next time I'm making this, I'm definitely skipping the chilies. Blah. Both me and husband do not enjoy these.
This recipe made a lot (plus we bought a 4 pound pork, not the 2 pounds) and it was so good day after day.
Day 1 we had it in burritos, day 2: salad, day 3: salad and burritos. It's so good. The only difference as far as I was concerned was more or less lettuce and whether it was wrapped in a tortilla or not.
And I will say the Cilantro lime rice and the Creamy Tomatillo Dressing were Super delicious. And the black beans from a can surprisingly helped pull the meal together.
Here's a picture of our yummy salad and what we put on it.
Yes, Mother I put Kale in it.
My mom and sisters have been in this crazy kale kick.
I wanted to join the club and have started putting kale in random foods-- like coke-soaked pork salads.
