If y’all have been following us for any amount of time, you already know that we love Mexican food! So, when we invited my parents to come over for dinner I knew I wanted to make a dish that they would love. This recipe has tons of flavor and is prepared in the slow cooker, which makes my life so much simpler 🙂 I am a big fan of making food ahead of time and use my slow cooker any chance that I can get.
I decided to prepare a dish that I have made before…Slow Cooker Barbacoa with Cilantro Lime Rice.
Here’s how I did it…
This recipe is a great mix of sweet and spicy, which I love!
When I first saw this recipe and saw that Coke Zero was included, I was a bit skeptical, but trust me…it works great in this!
While the pork is cooking, you can make the Cilantro Lime Rice.
I tend to use a bit more cilantro than 1/4 cup…I just love the flavor.
This is a filling dish, with a lot of flavor. We like to add black beans, avocado as well as Fage yogurt which serves as our sour cream. It’s like your own burrito bowl 🙂 It is delicious!
This really is a great and easy dish to prepare…it also makes for good leftovers and tends to have even more flavor the next day. My parents loved dinner and we loved cooking for them!
Give it a try and let us know what you think!
