Skinny{er} Pork Burritos with Green Sauce

This recipe came from my sister in law.
It is highly addictive!
My husband, who hates Mexican food, even Cafe Rio {Gasp!}, had seconds!
{Could be made Gluten-Free if eaten as a lettuce wrap!}
3-4 lb pork roast
1 can Pepsi {diet works great and lowers calories considerably}
1 Tbsp onion soup mix 
Large can green enchilada sauce {Las Palmas brand has 25 calories per 1/4 cup}
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 tbsp taco seasoning 
1 can low sodium black beans, lightly drained
Cilantro, washed and chopped
Cooked brown rice, optional 
Whole wheat tortillas 
Shredded cheese {i used low fat mozzarella} 
Low fat sour cream {plain Greek yogurt works great!}
Put roast in crockpot with 1 can Pepsi and 1Tbs. onion soup mix. Cook on high till done and easy to shred, about 4-6 hours. 
Remove most liquid from crockpot and shred pork.
Add 1 cup of green chili enchilada sauce, salt, pepper, taco seasoning and black beans.
Mix together and cook for 30 minutes longer.
Add cilantro and make in to burritos using cooked rice, shredded cheese, sour cream, extra enchilada sauce, or anything else you like!
