Sweet Barbacoa Pork Burrito Bowls






I love the barbacoa beef at Chipotle. It is my absolute favorite and I always get it in a burrito bowl. I decided to try and make it at home using pork instead. I had some boneless pork chops in the freezer so I used those. Let me tell you, it turned out great! The meat was so flavorful and moist and the fact that it had less calories than the beef was a bonus. I'll be making this again soon!
