Chili Lime Pork Burritos- Another FABULOUS Chili Lime Recipe

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

Be sure to check out this month's Mother's Day Giveaway and Sale! Going on NOW through April 29th!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Pampered Chef's new Chili Lime Rub...L O V E!  We are big burrito fans in our house, going to Panchero's at least twice a month.  Back home in Seattle we used to visit Taco Del Mar, or as we called it TACO DEL YUM YUM YUM! LOVE BURRITOS!  So, I decided to marry my love of burritos and my love of the chili lime rub to make Chili Lime Pork Burritos.  Of course, you could do this with chicken too, or beef for that matter.  Fold this the meat up with some black beans, brown rice, salsa, and cheese, serve this up with a dollop of sour cream and you have a really beautiful meal!  The leftovers make a great lunch too!

Chili Lime Pork Burritos

  • 2 large boneless pork loin chops
  • 2 tbsp. + 1 tbsp. Pampered Chef Chili Lime Rub (or equal parts chili powder and lime zest)
  • The juice of one lime
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 large green pepper, diced
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (I used leftover rice)
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans
  • 1 cup grated jack and/or cheddar cheese
  • 4 burrito sized flour tortillas
  • sour cream for serving if desired.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a 13X9 inch baking dish, place the onion and green pepper.  Rub the pork chops on both sides with 2 tbsp. of the chili lime rub.  Place the pork chops over the onions and green pepper.  Mix the lime juice and the chicken stock together and pour over the pork chops, onions and garlic.  Cover baking dish with aluminum foil and 1 and a half hours.  Add the salsa and pull the pork apart using two forks.  Bake another 30 minutes.  In another bowl, add the rice, the black beans, and remaining 1 tbsp. chili lime rub.  Microwave on high 2 minutes or until heated through. Stir.  Place tortillas in aluminum foil and place in the oven for 5 minutes or until warm.  To assemble burritos, spread tortilla with sour cream (if using), sprinkle 1/4 of the cheese,  spoon on some of the beans and some of the meat.  Fold in the sides and roll up!  

These were a BIG hit tonight!

Until next time, happy and HEALTHY cooking and EATING!
