Enjoy this copycat version of a Cafe Rio favorite at home with your family! It tastes just like you’re eating out!
Cafe Rio is one of our very favorite places to eat out. I can never decide between the burrito or the salad. And I almost always go with the salad! It’s my very favorite dish there and I try to eat it as slowly as I can so it will last longer.
This recipe includes five separate recipes for the different elements in the salad: sweet pork, cilantro lime rice, black beans, creamy tomatillo ranch dressing, and flour tortillas. Yes, that’s five recipes in one post! It’s your lucky day.
What’s your favorite part of this famous salad? I love the sweet pork. And that rice. The beans are amazing, too. Ok, I love the whole thing!
And then there’s the creamy tomatillo ranch dressing. Oh, that dressing. I could drink the stuff. I love it so much!
I hope you enjoy this meal as much as we do. It’s filling, it’s flavorful, and we love it!
Other ingredients for this salad include:
- grated Mexican blend cheese
- tortilla chip strips
- sour cream
