Chipotle and Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork and Refried Bean Burritos

30 Mar

Guest post by Zak, since he was kind enough to take care of dinner while I studied last night …

First of all, I’d like to give a big THANK YOU to Kelsey for allowing me to write this guest posting. Also, big thanks for all the wonderful cooking and blogging. I’m a lucky son of a gun.

I took care of the refried beans for these burritos. I used Google for recipe ideas.

My complete lack of skill in creative writing is making me self-conscious, so I will abruptly end this post on a disappointing note of shame and self loathing. The beans were great! Sorry B.

Chipotle and Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork and Refried Bean Burritos

2 cups leftover chiptole and Dr. Pepper shredded pork

2 1/2 cups black beans, drained and rinsed

5 cloves garlic, peeled

1 jalapeño, with seeds, stem removed

1 small yellow onion, quartered

1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped

1/4 lime, juiced

1/2 tsp. dried cumin

1/2 tsp. dried coriander

1/2 tsp. dried chili powder

1 tbs. olive oil

3-4 tortillas

1/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend

1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt

In a medium saucepan, heat shredded pork over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 10-15 minutes.

Place beans, garlic, jalapeño, onion, cilantro, lime, cumin, coriander, and chili in food processor.  Process in pulses  until mostly smooth.  Place 1 tbs. olive oil in cast iron pan and heat over medium-high heat.  Add bean mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, 10-15 minutes.

In a medium sauté pan, heat tortillas over medium heat, flipping from time to time, 5-10 minutes.
