Sweet Pork Salad

Cafe Rio Copycat Recipe

Serves 6

6 large Tortillas
Shredded cheese, Mexican blend
Cafe Rio Rice (see sidebar for recipe)
Cafe Rio Black Beans (see sidebar for recipe)
Cafe Rio Sweet Pork (see sidebar for recipe)
Romaine Lettuce
Pico de Gallo (see sidebar for recipe)
Guacamole (see sidebar for recipe)
Sour cream
Tortilla Strips
Cotija cheese, crumbled (or you can use Parmesan)
Cafe Rio Cilantro Ranch (see sidebar for recipe)
OR Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette (see sidebar for recipe)

Here is how to put it all together: First of all, I bought the aluminum deep-dish pans (they had these at the grocery store, you will know when you see them.. they look JUST like the Cafe Rio tins). Lay a tortilla in the bottom of the pan, sprinkle cheese on it, and put in the oven at 375 for about 5 min or until the cheese is melted.

Remove from oven, add beans, rice, pork, then lettuce and a little scoop of diced tomato and onions (pico de gallo). Add guacamole and sour cream. Add crushed tortilla chips, a shake of Parmesan cheese, and top with a few cilantro leaves. Serve with the cilantro ranch or vinaigrette dressing
