Mochomos Burrito

Mochomos is a dish from the Chihuahua region of Mexico.
What is unique, is the practice of frying shredded bits of pork or beef, until it looks like spun glass.
Shredded, fried Mochomos
Mochomos can also be diced bits of precooked meat, that are fried until they are crispy on the outside and juicy inside. That is the way I make them, but both are great.

1 pork loin roast-cubed
1 onion-diced
3cups water
Salt and pepper ( if desired)
2tbl. oil
flour tortillas
1 cup green chilli sauce
Burrito toppings of your choice such as: Diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sour cream, cheese,
guacamole, re-fried beans.

Add pork, onion and water to a 4quart pot. Boil until the water has evaporated, (20 min) Cool completely.
Heat the oil in a skillet. The oil needs to be very hot. (almost smoking) Add the pork and fry until it becomes brown and crispy on the outside. (don't stir fry, allow the meat to brown before turning) Add green chili sauce to the meat. Stir to combine.
Place the unopened tortillas in the microwave 45-60 second to soften. This makes them easier to roll.
Wrap meat and toppings burrito style. Serve. How To Fold A Burrito
