How to make Slow Cooker Pork Burritos:
In your slow cooker insert, add a pork shoulder roast, a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles, a packet of taco seasoning and a couple of teaspoons of honey. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, until the pork shreds apart easily. Take the pork out of the slow cooker and shred it apart. Then add the shredded pork back to the juices in the slow cooker.
It will be nice and tender! You can transfer the pork and some of the juices to a serving bowl.
Set out everything for each person to make their own burrito. Everyone likes different things in their slow cooker pulled pork burritos, so setting out a do-it-yourself burrito bar is an excellent idea.
What are the best fillings to add to a burrito:
- refried beans
- Mexican rice
- chopped lettuce
- shredded cheese
- sour cream
Wrap up the burritos to serve. Read this post on how to wrap a burrito, if you’re not sure how to do it! We like to cut ours in half to serve. Alternately, you can wrap the whole burrito in foil and just peel it back a little at a time to eat.
These burritos are such a favorite for dinner. Kids love them, and adults love them equally! Burrito bowls are another option for using up this tasty shredded pork. Add the shredded pork to a bowl with your favorite fixings, and eat. No flour tortillas necessary. Whether you eat these as burritos or bowls, they are delicious.
