Juicy Sweet Pork is smothered with a creamy and flavorful dressing and stuffed into tortillas. These are the best burritos that you can make at home.


  • Sweet Pork
  • 3 lb 3 pork tenderloin, pork shoulder, or pork butt

  • 1 5/6 cup 1 5/6 cola soda, divided into 1 1/2 cups and 1/3 cup

  • 2/3 cup 2/3 brown sugar, divided

  • 10 oz 10 can red enchilada sauce

  • 4 oz 4 can diced green chiles

  • 1 tbsp 1 minced garlic

  • Creamy Tomatillo Dressing
  • 3 3 tomatillos, outside leafy layer removed

  • 1 1 jalapeño

  • 1 tbsp 1 minced garlic

  • 1 handful 1 cilantro

  • 2 2 limes, juice

  • 2 cups 2 milk

  • 2 cups 2 mayonnaise

  • 3.5 tbsp 3.5 hidden valley ranch dressing mix

  • Burritos
  • tortillas

  • black beans

  • shredded lettuce

  • diced tomatoes

  • lime wedges

  • shredded Mexican-style cheese


  • In a bowl whisk 1/3 cup of the brown sugar and 1 1/2 cups of the cola soda together. Add the pork to the bottom of a slow cooker and pour the coca cola mixture on top. Cook on LOW for 6 hours or HIGH for 4-5 hours.
  • While the pork is cooking, add all of the ingredients for the dressing into a food processor or blender for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Pour into an air-tight container and refrigerate for at least an hour. This does make a lot of dressing, so half the recipe if you don’t want extra.
  • After the cooking time is up, discard the liquid in the slow cooker and remove any excess fat on the pork. Shred the pork in the slow cooker with two forks, a hand mixer, or a meat masher. Add the enchilada sauce, garlic, 1/3 cup of brown sugar, 1/3 cup of soda, and the can of green chilis. Stir everything to combine. Cook on HIGH for 30 minutes-1 hour.
  • Once the cooking time is up, assemble the burritos. We like to serve our sweet pork in a tortilla with shredded Mexican-style cheese, lettuce, tomato, lime, black beans, and of course plenty of the yummy Creamy Tomatillo Dressing. Enjoy!
