Pork, Bean & Rice Burritos

The combination of spices is key to this slow-cooked pork—it's my family's favorite burrito filling. The aroma that fills the air as the pork slowly simmers is like a Mexican restaurant. A perfect recipe for tailgate parties. —Valonda Seward, Coarsegold, California

  • Makes
    10 servings

Ingredients

  • SPICE RUB:
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • BURRITOS:
  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3 pounds)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons beef bouillon granules
  • 10 flour tortillas (10 inches)
  • 3 cups canned pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 cups cooked Spanish rice
  • Optional toppings: salsa, chopped tomato, shredded lettuce, sour cream and guacamole

Directions

  • Mix spice rub ingredients; rub over pork. Transfer to a 6-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix water and beef granules; pour around roast. Cook, covered, on low until meat is tender, 6-8 hours.
  • Remove roast; cool slightly. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking juices; discard remaining juices. Shred pork with 2 forks. Return pork and reserved juices to slow cooker; heat through.
  • Spoon a scant 1/3 cup shredded pork across center of each tortilla; top with a scant 1/3 cup each beans and rice. Fold bottom and sides of tortilla over filling and roll up. If desired, serve with toppings.
    Freeze option: Cool filling ingredients before making burritos. Individually wrap burritos in paper towels and foil; freeze in a freezer container. To use, remove foil; place paper towel-wrapped burrito on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high until heated through, turning once, 3-4 minutes. Let stand 20 seconds. If desired, serve with toppings.

    This is delicious and my family loved it—Hubs said it was as good or better than what we could get at a restaurant. High praise, right there! :) I also love that it freezes well and is so versatile—have used in place of sausage for breakfast.

    Omg! Best burritos ever... the spice combo on the pork not only filled the house with an amazing aroma but the pork was to die for. I did add more of the cooking juices than called for. Only thing i changed. Wil make again and again. Thanks
