I love a good burrito bowl (or plate in this case). I came across this recipe and decided to give it a shot. It was tasty and I loved the veggies and pineapple. I also love slow cooker cooking.



Enchilada Sauce:

  • (14.5 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 2 Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 Tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup pineapple juice


  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 lbs pork sirloin roast
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chile powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper


  • ½ tbsp coconut oil
  • 1½ cups quinoa, uncooked, rinsed and drained
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 bell peppers, thinly sliced (I used red and orange)
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Pineapple, sliced into rings
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Cilantro, chopped




Enchilada Sauce: In a crock pot, add the ingredients for the enchilada sauce: tomato sauce through the pineapple juice. Whisk until well combined.

For the Pork: In a large skillet, add the coconut oil and heat over medium high heat.

Season all sides of the pork with the cumin, chile powder, salt and pepper.

Add the pork to the skillet and sear on all sides, about 2 mins per side. Once seared add to a slow cooker. Spoon some of the enchilada sauce over the top of the pork. Cook on high for 3½ hours, or until done.

Remove the pork from the slow cooker and onto a large plate. Shred with two forks. Place back into slow cooker and mix well with the sauce.

To serve:

Cook the quinoa according to the packages instructions. Set aside until ready to serve. Remove from the heat.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the peppers and sauté for 5 minutes or until soft. Remove from the heat and add the pineapple slices. Cook until slightly browned, about 1 minute.

To serve, add quinoa to a bowl, top with the pepper mixture then the pork. Garnish with the pineapple rings, avocado and cilantro.
