Hope all of you had a good weekend. We had our (Church) Christmas party on Saturday. It was so fun…we’re still pretty new in this area, so it was fun to meet even more people. I even waited until nearly the end of the party, because that’s when Santa came, and I wanted to get a Santa picture with Kylie, but man, that line formed soooo fast, I didn’t even realize there were that many kids at the party, I swear they just appeared out of nowhere, haha. Kylie was getting so tired, so I just took her home, and it’s ok, because my friend mentioned she has a Santa costume 🙂 So I’ll get my pictures in a ‘less of a wait’ setting.
I’ve been making a lot of crock-pot meals lately, and this is one of them. The meat is so easy to make & affordable. The pork roast I used (I’m sure of the exact part of the pig it is) is usually between 6-8 dollars. *If you’ve ever had Cafe Rio Pork, this tastes a lot like that…but I use much less sugar in mine:)
1 pork roast
approx 4-6 c water (depending on how soupy you want in to be)
1 can coke (can be caffein free if you want or diet)
1 regular size can red enchilada sauce
1 tsp salt
Combine water, coke, salt & roast together in crock pot on high for 4 hours (or until meat just falls apart when you poke with a fork. ) Then add the red enchilada sauce & brown sugar to taste if you want it sweeter.
*This next part you can add into the pork, or put on burritos separately.
-Cooked brown or white rice (any kind of rice really)
-1-2 cans pinto beans
Green enchilada sauce to pour over top
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world
