Pulled Pork Burritos with Cheesy Sour Cream Sauce

I love southern pulled pork (what we call barbecue) and I love burritos. These Pulled Pork Burritos with Cheesy Sour Cream Sauce marry the two together. And you can’t go wrong with anything covered in a cheesy, creamy sauce!

Pulled Pork Burritos with Cheesy Sour Cream Sauce


For these Pulled Pork Burritos, you can use some pork that you’ve cooked in the crock pot or you could get a container of pulled pork at the grocery store. Look for it near the packaged lunch meats. My favorite thing to do is to get a pound of pulled pork from my favorite bbq restaurant. If the pulled pork you use doesn’t have any or only a little sauce, you will want to add a few tablespoons of BBQ sauce to it for flavor.

Pulled Pork Burritos with Cheesy Sour Cream Sauce for Cinco de Mayo


Because pulled pork has so much flavor on its own, I kept the other filling ingredients simple. Just some cooked Mexican rice from one of those packets at the grocery store and some shredded cheese. They all get wrapped up in a flour tortilla and baked until crispy.

While they bake, you make a delicious cheesy sour cream sauce to spoon over them.

The sauce really helps flavor these burritos up but I also like to add some salsa and fresh cilantro.

My favorite way to make these burritos spicy is to serve them with lots of Cholulu Hot Sauce.

10 thoughts on “Pulled Pork Burritos with Cheesy Sour Cream Sauce”

  1. This was very tasty, and I agree with Jen in that the sour cream/cheese sauce recipe made way too much sauce for the 4 burritos.

  2. Made this to use up some leftover pulled pork I had. Good quick weeknight meal! I would put lettuce, tomato and avocado on it if I did it again.

  3. I was in a hurry so I took shortcuts – used smoked pork (not pulled, cut into tiny cubes); Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice (chili garlic flavor) and some shredded cheese and a little cheese sauce from a jar. Mixed all that up and made the burritos. Also used store bought for the sauce (just a cheese sauce like Tostito’s and some sour cream and spices (green chile powder, garlic, salt-free blend) and it was all good.

  4. This was ahhmazing, I used leftover smoked pulled pork, made homemade Mexican rice, and fresh enchilada sauce and it was over the top yummy.

  5. Soo good ! Both my husband and Father in-law love this. Hubby says he’d order it from a restaurant!
    Ty so much.

  6. This recipe looks really good. Is this something you could cook in an air fryer or instantpot do you think? We are remodeling our kitchen and have no oven or stove 🙁

  7. Just made these tonight with some leftover pulled pork. They were amazing! I used my family’s favorite Mexican rice recipe and a Mexican-blend shredded cheese in the burrito. Leftover coleslaw from the pulled pork, corn salsa, and guacamole rounded out the meal. Yum! The cream sauce balances the other flavors. I used 2% greek yogurt instead of sour cream. You will get a lot of sauce if you follow the recipe. Next time, I will make half.

  8. Very delicious and easy to prepare. I did mix the Pork, rice and cheese together before dividing among the tortillas and I think that makes it easier to divide. Loved the cream sauce! I will definitely make this again.

  9. I followed the recipe almost exactly but I didn’t have one of the ingredients. Nevertheless, it came out delicious. Going to make it again soon with modifications. It was crispy and

    Only negative is that I’m sure I can find a much better creamy cheese sauce. Yours was very good though. Thanks.
