Taquitos

Free of: Gluten, Corn, Egg
I warn you, this is another one of those 'loose' recipes.  There is no right or wrong here, just what your taste buds like.

Ingredients:

Pork Loin ( as much as you want to make up to eat)
Garlic powder (optional)
GF Soy Sauce (optional)

Place pork loin in a crock pot and cover with water.  I like to shake in garlic powder and soy sauce.  Not to much, just enough to give a little flavor.

I cook the pork loin on high for about seven hours.  When it is done, it will fall apart.  Drain off the broth and finish pulling the meat apart.

Add your favorite salsa to the pulled pork, to create a thick meaty paste.  Taste meat mixture, and add salsa until you like the way it tastes.  

Tortillas:

I use rice tortillas, but use what you like (depending on which kid I am feeding).  Use a skillet and place a small amount of oil in the pan.  Once heated up, place the tortilla in the skillet and warm up the tortilla.  Flip it over and do the same on the other side.  This make the tortilla soft and pliable.  Put as much filling in the tortilla as you wish, and roll it up.  Note:  If you are not allergic to cheese, this is the point where you can add cheese on top of your meat filling and roll up.  I have not mastered the ultra skinny, pencil thin roll ups, but my kids like them anyway I roll them, skinny, fat, or medium sized.  I don't believe in perfection here. 

Once, I have a stack of rolled tortillas, I fry in them in a skillet of heated oil.  I fry them just until they are browned on both side.  Drain on a paper towel and serve.
