Costa Vida Sweet Pork Burritos

There are a lot of different recipes for Costa Vida and Cafe Rio burritos and salads floating around the internet. I've tried a few different variations and I have to say that this one is by far the closest to the original. If you want, you can mix and match with the Costa Vida Salad recipe for different variations. Costa Vida is one of my favorite restaurants so I'm so glad I found a recipe that's so close to the original.

This looks so yummy!! Do you think it would work with tenderloin inside of the rib?

Mandy said...

Yeah, it would probably work with any kind of pork meat. The original recipe called for rib meat and I like using that because it's usually cheaper.

On the ingredients for the sweet pork. Are you saying 3/4 of a 10 ounce can? Or 7.5 ounces?

Mandy said...

Yes, 3/4 of a 10 oz can.

Tiffany Farlow said...

Thanks! I'm going finish it later today. I'll let you know how it goes.

Tiffany Farlow said...

This was delicious! It was just like Costa Vida! Thanks for sharing it. :)

Mandy said...

I'm glad you liked it :)

Is there anything I could substitute for the coke? Thanks.

Mandy said...

I'm not sure. I've never tried anything else. I've seen similar recipes where they've used root beer so you could try that if you don't want to use coke. The coke gives it a sweet flavor so it might be hard to substitute. You could try molasses but it will probably give it a different flavor. I hope that helps.

Would this work the same with a pound pork loin? I have one of those in my freezer right now, but not the ribs...

Mandy said...

Yes. I've used other kinds of pork meat and it works great.

Everything was spot on delicious. We moved away from Arizona 7 years ago and now we have one less reason to go back.
