Mesquite BBQ Sandwiches {Dairy-free, Egg-free, Nut-free}

Because of my continuous posting of sweet stuff, I decided to throw in some meals that you can actually eat and receive nourishment from. I know it's hard to believe, but man cannot live by sweets alone. It's a fallen world we live in. So, we better make the most of it! This is one of my favorites. It involves one of the greatest inventions ever...the crockpot.


Mesquite BBQ Sandwiches {Dairy-, Egg-, Peanut-Free}

Pork Tenderloin, Mesquite flavored {any size}

Hamburger Buns {Publix brand are free of egg and dairy.}

Put your pork tenderloin in the crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours {You could cook on high 4-6 hours and get same results.} Pork will be falling apart perfectly. Shred and put in a bowl. Add a little {or a lot} of your favorite bbq sauce and mix until it is covered to your liking. Put on hamburger buns. Serve with Black Beans and Chips & Salsa. {See below for recipes}


Southwest Black Beans {allergy-free}

2 cans Bush's Seasoned Black Beans, drained {and I rinse mine, but it's not necessary}

1/3 cup brown sugar

3 T red wine vinegar

ground cumin

chili powder


freshly ground pepper

Put beans in sauce pan, add brown sugar, vinegar, cumin and chili powder. Heat through, stirring often. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can also add more vinegar as needed. I usually add more near the end. Make sure beans are cooked until tender. Serve.

Homemade Salsa & Chips

1 can Rotel, drained 10 oz.

1 can Hunts Whole Tomatoes, drained 28 oz.

2-3 green onions, cut up

handful of fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

jalepeno, sliced & deseeded, then chopped {use as many as you like...I use only 1}

red wine vinegar to taste {or lime juice instead}

chili powder


Put all ingredients in food processor. Pulse until you get the desired texture. Serve with tortilla chips.
