Ooh La La Lucha Carnita Burrito


¼ cup cooked white rice
¼ cup cooked black beans
¾ cup slow roasted Pork Butt (recipe to follow)
1 Tbsp cilantro roughly chopped
1 Tbsp pickled red onion and jalapeno (recipe to follow)
2 Tbsp roasted corn
1 Tbsp sour cream
1 Tbsp guacamole
1 Tbsp salsa verde


Start by brushing guacamole on across the bottom of the shell.
Star to layer your ingredients however you would like. I recommend rice, followed by beans, followed by pork, followed by the rest.
Fold end over end, fold in the sides and then roll tight.

12 hour slow cooked Pork Butt


8-9 lb pork butt
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
2 cups water


Toast all the spices together and grind.
Rub the pork all over.
Place in roasting pan with 2 cups of water in the bottom will inhibit the fat from burning.
Place in the oven at 215 degrees and roast for 12 hours. Check after 11 hours to see where you're at. Insert a thermometer, if it reads 185-190 you are good to go. 
Let cool for a half hour and start pulling!

Pickled Red Onion and Jalapeno Relish


1 red onion sliced thin
2 jalapenos sliced thin
¼ cup sugar
pinch salt
½ cup rice vinegar
pinch cumin


Mix all ingredients together and let sit out at room temp, stirring constantly for 1 hour.
