Cafe Rio Salad and Dressing!

This is the recipe I got from my sister-in-law, Tammy to imitate the barbacoa pork salad from Cafe Rio!

3.5-4 lb pork roast
2 t cumin
1 and 1/2 t Kanye (cayenne) pepper
1 t salt
Mix spices together and rub onto pork and cook on low overnight in crock pot.

In the morning, add the following:
1 cup of chicken stock or broth
2 cups of chopped white onions or 1 small white onion chopped
16 oz or 2 cups of Coke
2 cloves of garlic
Cook all day on low and one hour before serving, shred the meat and add in 1 cup of brown sugar and cook for another hour on low.

Creamy Cilantro Cafe Rio Imitation Dressing:
1 1/3 cup of LIGHT sour cream
3/4 cup of LIGHT mayo
1 bunch of cilantro
1 whole pack of Hidden Valley dry Ranch dressing
4 T green salsa verde
2-3 crushed garlics
1/8 tsp of Tabasco (or a couple of dabs)
Juice of 1 lime
Mix in food processor or VitaMix until all blended, and ready to eat!
