Leftover Transformation: Pulled Pork Burritos

My boyfriend and I have been working to stay within a tightish budget with groceries this spring and have been able to make some pretty healthy meals despite the constraints. Tonight we feasted on fresh veggies wrapped up inside pork burritos! Honestly, it is sort of a mix of old and new since the rice, lentils and onion mix was from Monday and the pulled pork from Tuesday, but it is always an exciting thing when you are able to make leftovers seem new. 
cheese, cilantro, green onions, tomatoes

They were super tasty, so here is how I made them! 

Monday's Rice and Lentils:
1/2 C rice
1/2 C lentils
several cups water
1 onion, chopped
about 1T oil (choose olive oil if you can, healthier!)

Boil lentils in water for 20 minutes. Give enough water to keep lentils covered. Add rice. Add water as needed to keep lentils and rice very moist. Boil 20 or so minutes until rice is cooked at mixture is soft and moist. Saute onions in oil while rice is cooking. Add to rice when all is cooked. 

Tuesday's Pulled pork:
1 pork roast
1 package dry ranch dressing

Coat roast with ranch package contents. Heat in crock pot 24+ hours. 

 Yummy Burritos
rice, tortillas, and pork
green onions

Heat up leftover rice and pork and add cheese and veggies to wheat tortillas. Yum!!

Note: We took the extra cilantro and hung it upside-down to dry for later. Will let you know how it turned out later.
