Chipotle Barbecue Pork Burritos

Are you ready for the rain?

We are supposed to get up to 10 inches this weekend. I keep getting emails from campus and my apartment complex warning me to stay safe and dry. And you can totally tell that it is getting ready to pour. When you walk outside, it is like walking into a sauna, like someone just poured water over the hot coals and you are breathing in the vapors.

What to do this weekend to avoid the rain? Make some pork in your crock pot and re-purpose it into multiple dishes. Like these burritos. The bbq sauce is sweet and spicy. Adjust the amount of chipotle pepper and adobo sauce to your personal taste.

Chipotle Barbecue Pork Burritos
For Pork:
1/8 cup ketchup
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp adobo sauce + 1/2 chopped chipotle pepper
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/8 cup water
2 cups of chopped or shredded leftover pork

For Burrito Assembly:
10 inch flour tortillas
chopped green leaf lettuce
chopped avocado
chopped tomato
shredded cheese, whatever flavor you desire

Combine all of the pork ingredients, except the water and the pork, in a small sauce pan. Mix and cook over medium heat until bubbling, about 3-4 minutes. Add the pork and water and stir to coat. Bring to a boil and cook until the sauce thickens around the pork about 2-3 minutes.

Assemble the burritos, by laying pork, lettuce, avocado, tomato and cheese on a tortilla. Fold in the sides and roll up tightly.
