I loved this recipe! It was so versatile and my entire family ate it. It was super easy to cook the pork overnight. I am absolutely in love with the dressing and our family has been putting it on the table almost every meal now. I loved that I could give my kiddos the rice and beans on the side. We served ours as tacos with rice, beans, pork, dressing, fresh lettuce, and some guacamole! FANTASTIC, and made TONS of leftovers. We ate it as a salad the next evening.
2 pounds pork (I used boneless pork Tenerloin)
3 cans Coke (NOT diet)
1 ¼ C brown sugar
dash of garlic salt
1/4 cup water
1 can diced green chilies
3/4 can enchilada sauce
Marinate: 1 ½ can of coke and ¼ C brown sugar. Marinade for a few hours or overnight. Drain marinade and put pork, ½ can of coke, water, and garlic salt in crock-pot on low for 6- 8 hours. Remove pork from crock-pot and drain any liquid. Shred pork.
In a food processor or blender, blend ½ can Coke, chilies, enchilada sauce and remaining brown sugar (about a cup, you can add a little more or less to taste.). If it looks too thick, add more Coke slowly
Put shredded pork and sauce in crock-pot and cook on low for 2 hrs.
Cilantro Ranch Dressing
1 Pkg dry Ranch mix (not BUTTERMILK)
1 c. Light Sour cream
1 c. skim milk
1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic

Mix all ingredients together in the blender. That's it!
2 C cooked rice (long-grain, brown rice)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
3 Tbsp. fresh chopped cilantro
Once rice is cooked add all ingredients together.
