.:Cafe Rio Salad:.

For all the Utah people, and I guess some Nevada people, you all know the goodness of Cafe Rio. If you've never had the opportunity to partake....I'm sorry. But you can have a little taste! There are probably a few variations of this floating around out there. I got this recipe from my sister and it is tasty!

Pork:
-pork roast
-1 bottle honey bbq sauce
-1 tbsp honey
-1 liter coke
*Place all ingredients in a large crock pot and cook on low all night. In the morning shred roast and leave in juices on low til time to eat. (I never have done this... I just do low all day)

Lime Rice:
saute -2 tbsp butter
-1 yellow onion chopped
-4 cloves minced garlic

bring to boil: -6 2/3 cup water
-8 tsp chicken bullion
-1/2 bunch chopped cilantro
-2 tsp cumin
-2 small cans diced green chilis
-1 tbsp lime juice
-1/2 tsp salt

Add onion and garlic to boiling water and add 3 cups long grain rice, reduce heat, cover and simmer 30 minutes

Tomatillo dressing:
-1 pkg hidden valley buttermilk ranch dressing dry mix
-1 cup buttermilk
-1 cup mayonnaise
-1-2 tomatillos, peeled
-1/2 - 1 clove minced garlic
-1/2 bunch chopped cilantro
-1/2 tsp lime juice
-1 small jalapeno pepper (can remove seeds so not so hot, or only add half pepper)
*Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth. Add additional mayonnaise if seems too thin.

Serve all with tortillas, Cotija cheese, black beans, lettuce, pico de gallo, guacamole, & lime slices.
