Adapted from keyingredient.com
(3 lb) boneless pork roast, well trimmed of fat
lb dried pinto bean (do not presoak)
garlic cloves, minced
tablespoons cumin seeds
tablespoons chili powder
teaspoons dried oregano
teaspoon ground coriander
⁄2-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
(28 ounce) can whole tomatoes, with juice
(7 ounce) can diced green chilies
⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
flour tortillas, warmed
Preheat oven to 250°F.
Place pork roast in a large Dutch oven.
Add remaining ingredients and stir to mix well.
Cover and bake in the oven for 7-8 hours or until beans are tender. I usually put it in the night before and cook overnight. Sometimes it takes a bit longer the next day, depending on how cold the ingredients are and how old the beans are!
(Check from time to time and add more water if mixture gets too dry).
When done, remove the meat from the pan and shred in bite-size pieces. (I find just stirring it well when it is done breaks up the meat sufficiently).
Return meat to pan and stir.
This should be the consistency of chili.
Season to taste.
To assemble, place a warm tortilla on a plate, top with Mexicali meat.
Top with choices of condiments, fold in edges, and roll loosely.
Chef Note: This is a perfect dish for OAMC/Bulk cooking. Freeze meal-sized portions in rigid freezer containers or Ziplock freezer bags. To use, defrost and reheat in microwave or on stovetop.

These are sooo good. Put it all together before I went to bed and set the oven to turn off after 7 hours. The next day it was ready. It would be great to have a couple of packages of this already made in the freezer. I will add a few more beans next time to absorb just a little more of the juices--maybe another ¼ pound. I won't be going out for burritos anymore when I know I can make the best at
