Sweet Pulled Pork Salad & Taquitos

Compilation of Recipes
After spending the weekend in Utah, I got to eat Cafe Rio again. Yummy. I've tried many different recipes for sweet pork and the tomatillo dressing. This is the latest, and so far the best. The taquitos were inspired by The Cheesecake Factor (of all places). We ate there the last night in SLC, and ordered taquitos as an appetizer. It's amazing how great meat and cheese can taste!

Pork Ingredients:

Pork Butt Roast (I know, it's the butt...but! I've tried a tenderloin and regular roast, and the HEB meat lady said the butt is the best for pulled pork...agreed!)
1 can Coke
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup fat free French dressing
1 envelope onion soup mix
2 cloves garlic

Combine all ingredients in the crock pot and cook on low for 5 hours.

Tamatillo Dressing Ingredients:

1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch Mix
1 large jalepeno
1 clove garlic
1 tamatillo
1 handfull cilantro
1 lime
1 cup fat free mayo
1 cup fat free plain yogurt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

Other Ingredients:

Guerrero Tortillas
Monterrey Jack Cheese
Black Beans
Steamed Rice (mixed with cilantro and fresh lime juice)
Lettuce, Cilantro, Limes, Pico di Gallo
