  • 2 1/2 pound pork loin
  • 2 cup salsa
  • 4 tablespoon brown sugar


  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1 none cooking spray
  • 1 cup brown rice, raw
  • 2 cup chicken broth, low-sodium
  • 1/3 cup cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

To Wrap

  • 14 1/2 ounce black beans, canned
  • 1 medium bell pepper, red
  • 2 teaspoon cilantro
  • 6 medium tortilla, whole wheat
  • 6 leaf lettuce, romaine
  • 1/8 cup ranch dressing, low fat

Serve With

  • 2 cup pineapple


  • Place pork into slow cooker (no need to add any liquid). Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
  • Shred pork in crockpot by pulling at it with two forks. Add salsa and brown sugar; mix well. Cover and cook for an additional 1 hour.
  • Once you shred the pork, chop onion and spray a sauce pan with cooking spray, heating over medium.
  • Add onion to pan and allow to brown, approximately 8-10 minutes. Add rice, broth, cilantro and salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn heat down to low and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed. Turn off heat and allow to rest 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  • Meanwhile, drain and rinse beans and thinly slice bell pepper.
  • Add beans, cilantro, and 1/4 of the salsa from the crockpot to another small pan. Heat the mixture over medium while mashing some of the beans. Cook 3-4 minutes until just heated.
  • Lay out the tortillas (heat first if desired) and layer with lettuce, beans, a few slices of pepper, rice, and pork. Drizzle ranch over the top then roll up.
  • Serve with pineapple on the side.
