Cafe Rio Type Pork Barbacoa

So today I'm posting a recipe that I got over at my friend Beckey's recipe blog. Beckey and her family lived here for 4 years while her husband went to dental school. I have really enjoyed reading her recipe blog and look forward to trying out more of the recipes. This has become a FAVOURITE in our house. For the most part it's the only meat we make for our tacos now. Trust me......... try'll love it!!!!

3-5 lb Pork Loin or Pork Roast
1½ cans Coke Classic (Dr. Pepper is better)
1 c. sugar
7 oz can chipotle chilies in adobo sauce – provides a lot of heat
(or plain adobo sauce for sweeter sauce)
1 tsp. dry ground mustard, heaping
1 tsp. cumin, heaping
1 tsp. garlic, minced

Remove the chilies from adobo sauce (throw chilies away) and add all ingredients (except pork)
in a blender. Rinse can of adobo sauce with Coke (Dr. Pepper) to get all the sauce out. Blend in
blender until well mixed. Place pork in crock pot and pour sauce over it. Cook for 4 to 6 hours on high or 7 to 9 hours on low. Carefully turn roast over halfway through the cooking cycle. Cook in sauce until p
ull apart tender and shred. Put shredded meat back into sauce. Serve in tortilla with toppings of your choice.

- When I have made this we use Dr.Pepper and instead of taking the chilies out of the adobe sauce we just blend them up with it. We don't find it too spicy, but that's all your own preference. Hope you will all try this out......maybe someday I'll make it to Cafe Rio.....I've heard wonderful things about it but have never been......thanks Beckey for an AWESOME recipe.....
