Sweet Pork.

Sweet Pork from Randi (and Shauna)

1 Pork Roast
1 cup salsa
1 1/3 cup brown sugar

Put all in a crock pot and let it cook all day.

Lemon Cilantro Rice:
2 cups water
1/3 cup lemon juice (I like a bit more)
1 tsp chicken bouillon
pinch of garlic powder
add desired amount of cilantro
1 cup rice

I cook the rice in my rice cooker and add the extra stuff after it is done cooking. Or you can cook it all together on the stove. Bring ingredients to boil and then add rice. Stir and turn down to medium high, bring to boil again and steam.

Cilantro Ranch Dressing:

1 pkg ranch dressing
2-3 T salsa verde (green)
1/8 tsp Tabasco
1/2 bunch cilantro with stems
2 med garlic cloves
3/4 cup mayo
3/4 cup sour cream
juice and rind from 1 lime
Mix all together in blender - thin to desired thickness with milk if necessary

I just put one can of drained rinsed beans in a pot. Add some salsa, garlic powder and cilantro and maybe lime juice. Let in warm up together to blend flavors.

Pica de Gallo: (serves 2)
3 Roma tomatoes, diced
3 green onions, diced
juice from 1/2 lime
1 JalapeƱo, seeded and sliced (ok without as well)
1 T fresh cilantro
Combine all ingredients, cover and refrigerate to let flavors blend.

*Serve with lettuce and cheese. Can be used in burritos, tacos, salad and just the pork on sandwiches.
