Cafe Rio en su casa. . . . . (is that grammatically correct?)

So, for any of you out there that LOVE Cafe Rio but have no access to it's deliciousness, boy do I have a recipe for you. Yes, you can make Cafe Rio at home. Check it out. Many of our friends out here have introduced us to this and it's the next best thang, I tell ya! I made a 6 lb roast for it and we had dinner for a week. I don't usually like leftovers, but I ate it all up. I'm totally addicted. BTW, it freezes well, too.

Cafe Rio Pork
6 lb pork roast
20 oz coco cola
12 oz La Victoria Red Taco Sauce (mild)
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp cumin
Cook the pork roast in crock pot for 12 hours on low, filling pot half way with water. Drain water and add remaining ingredients. Cook for 2-4 more hours. Shred in crock pot and cook for 2 more hours.

Layer salad as follows:
Green Chili Rice
Black Beans
Pork meat
Chopped romaine lettuce
Diced tomatoes
Cheese (any kind that suits your fancy)
Chip strips
A little parmesan cheese
Creamy Tomatillo Ranch Dressing
Feel free to glob some guacamole and sour cream on the side!

OMG! I can't say enough of how absolutely scrumptious this dish was...everyone in the family agreed! After skimming the directions and reading them WRONG, everything turned out splendid! My palate won't ever be the same! Thanks so much for the joy in eating it allowed for myself and my family!!
