I’ve survived 3 days without sugar. And I’m surprisingly even more hyper than usual. I like it.

You know what I didn’t like? How much you all hated my savory waffles yesterday. I go outside the box and you all sh*t yourself with anger. Sorry for being creative. Sorry for thinking that biscuits and gravy sounds good. I’m SO weird. Ok, sorry for getting mad. Someone I know ate these waffles with gravy, over easy eggs, and bacon and gave it a 9 out of 10. Just sayin.

You know what blows…dropping a carton of eggs on the floor. I’m so stupid clumsy.

There are a couple things I haven’t done in a while.

  1. Made a cooking video. Well that’s not fully true. I’ve made some with Again Faster recently, but they haven’t come out yet. BUT I haven’t made a dancing cooking video. I’m going to do that this weekend. What should I dance to?! Oh the possibilities.
  2. I haven’t talked about my gear lately. WHAT THE?! I’ll do that in a sec.
  3. And I haven’t posted pictures of good looking people in my PaleOMG gear. I suck. Let’s get to it.

If you haven’t seen my PaleOMG gear, you’re missing out. I have men t-shirts, women’s t-shirts, women’s tanks, and uni-sex headbands. True story. HEADBANDS. Only the greatest accessory known to man. And I say headband(S) because I have 2 different colors of headbands!!!!!!! Yes, I just yelled that in my head. Hence the exclamation points.

Let’s check out good looking paleo all stars.

Jason at CrossFit Titan! that tattooed man is gigantic.
Julia and Ryan at CF Roseburg! I freaking love them!
Frank after his second Rx workout!! Awesome job Frank! You’re a stud!
Brooke and her birthday cake. She’s not good looking at all.
Jen at a CF Omaha Team Competition! Badass!! We have matching shoes. I’m officially cool.
Aaron at the CrossFit Games! Wish I could have been there!
Joel from impossiblehq.com! Why don’t you have a headband on if you are standing next to headband grafitti?! hmmmm?
One more time, Krystle and I at Krystle’s first competition at CF Defy- Lift the Rockies
My cousin Michelle and her coach Jason!
Team PaleOMG (Brian, Grant, Krystle, and Laura) – the winners of the first ever CrossFit Broadway Amazing Race!

If you posted a picture of yourself on instagram and tagged me in it, you will not be featured on my pictures. That’s because I’m an idiot and don’t know how to pull those pictures off my phone. But please don’t stop doing that because it’s super cool. And I love it. But sending me some pictures in my email or posting on my facebook page is even better!

Oh, about this recipe. If you think it’s longer, that’s because it is. Some things take time people. Stop being so impatient. Work for your food.

  • Prep Time: 8 hours
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 8 hours 20 minutes
  • Yield: 3 1x



For the tortillas

  • 6 egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 6 tablespoons canned coconut milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

For the filling

  • 1.5lbs pork rump roast
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1.5 cup vegetable broth

For the avocado cream sauce

  • 2 avocados, pitted and insides removed (don’t put the skin in the food processor. duh)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, stems removed
  • 3 tablespoons canned coconut milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1 lime


  1. Ok so you got to start a day ahead of time with this meal. Slow cook that pork butt. Place onions in your crockpot, then rump roast on top, and then all the rest of the ingredients for the filling in your crockpot. Turn crockpot on low and cook for 6-8 hours.
  2. Once your pork is doing cooking, use two fork to shred it to pieces. Mmmmmm shredded meat.
  3. Now time to make your tortillas. Whisk all your tortilla ingredients together until all the lumps are gone.
  4. Place a large skillet over medium heat and grease with a bit of oil. Pour a 4 inch in diameter circle in the center of your pan and tilt the pan around to spread the batter into a large circle.
  5. Let the tortilla cook for a minute or so, until the tortilla bubbles and the edges begin to turn up. BEING VERY CAREFUL, circle your spatula under the tortilla pulling up all the edges before you flip it.
  6. Cook on other side for another minute.
  7. Place on plate to let cool. Repeat with leftover batter. You should get 5-6 tortillas from your batter.
  8. While your tortillas are cooling, place all the ingredients for your avocado cream sauce into a food processor and puree until completely smooth. This may take a couple minutes.
  9. Now turn on your broiler to high.
  10. Grab an 8×8 glass baking dish, lay out a tortilla, place a little bit of your shredded pork along with a little avocado cream sauce (be sure to save some to put on top of the tortillas later) then curl the sides of the tortilla around to make a mini burrito. Repeat with all of your tortillas so they are lined up side by side in your glass baking dish.
  11. Put your baking dish under your broiler and cook for about 6-8 minutes or until your tortillas become crispy.
  12. Then remove baking dish from the oven and turn broiler to low. Cover the enchiladas with the rest of your avocado cream sauce then place back in the oven for 5-7 minutes.
  13. Top with cilantro.
  14. Serve those little enchiladas on up!

    I made these tonight, along w regular enchiladas for the kids. I was pissed b/c my kids loved THESE more than the regular ones and they ate them all! There goes my lunch for tomorrow 🙁 These were amazing, and I plan to make the “tortillas” to use as crepes for breakfast, wraps for lunch, dessert crepes…

  2. Alyssa says:

    These look sooo sooo good! I like to make food ahead for enexpexted late nights.
    Does anyone know if these would freeze well?

  3. Jen G says:

    Are your headbands still available? I clicked the link and it “was not found” 🙁 I would love to get one!

  4. Eric says:

    Tortillas were a little tricky to get nice and thin, but these were phenomenal! And so were the other sh*t ton of recipes I’ve been making over the past months…thought I’d finally share some love. I’ll try to do more ratings in the future. Thanks for making my paleo lifestyle much more tasty!

    Also, I’ve read your periodic rants about acne. In a recent recipe post, I noticed it’s around your jaw line. You’ve probably gotten all the advice in the world, but are you one of those people who rests your chin/jaw on your hand when relaxing? I’ve been there, and I found that I’ve seriously reduced my acne after stopping that habit. I’m not educated in dermatology in any way, but my friend mentioned it to me at some point and claims that the bacteria, etc on your hands can be malicious to the complexion of your face. Just a thought, anyway. Cheers!

    I just started following your blog, you are super talented with food!! Everything I have made has been A-H-H-H-mazing!!
    I have an unrelated/dumb question, when you did your sugar detox, does that mean no fruit? I would die…but really want to do it.

    1. juli says:

      Yep no fruit. But you can do it!

    I noticed that several of these reviews say how good this recipe looks but I actually made it tonight so I thought I would give my two-cents. My wife decided about 3 months ago that she wanted to start Whole 30. She was having stomach, skin and sleep issues. She read that this “way of eating” might resolve these problems. And if she lost some weight that would be an extra benefit. although I don’t have any of these issues I agreed to do it because it seemed stupid to eat two different menus. Part of the agreement was that I will cook dinner on Friday night. The only bad thing about this (well actually two things) is that I can’t go to Cross-Fit that night and I don’t really cook. I start going to this website because it is easy to navigate and some of your posts really crack me up. I have made several of your recipes over the last 3 months and they have been excellant. My wife has complimented all the meals. They usually take me alot more time than you show it will take (kind of like some of my WOD times) but I always get it done. I’m probably old enough to be most of your followers’ father, but it’s not true that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. We were both were born & raised in AZ so we were weaned on Mexican food. Paleo doesn’t really lend itself to authentic Mexican food but this looked like a good sustitute. When I told my wife that this was the recipe I was making this week, she asked (several times) if I really thought I was up to it. With her doubt I knew I had to try it. OK see even I’m rambling and I haven’t talked about this meal. It turned out great and we both really enjoyed it. I have to admit that I had a “ton” of meat left over. NBD, I’ll use it for the Hawaiian Pizza Salad. I did have a little trouble with the tortillas. I doubled the coconut milk to thin out the batter and it worked better for me. I think next time I will leave the lemon juice out of the avocado cream sauce. We thought it made the sauce a little tangy. It’s a great recipe and you made me look good for another week. Keep up the good work.

    My son’s girlfriend just texted me this recipe and says it’s to die for! They are visiting this weekend so I’m making a batch. Thank you for the great work you do to keep us all healthy.

    So i just found this blog and tried this recipe as I am phasing into a more paleo diet… hard for someone who loves carbs and sugar! It was pretty good though i was kicking myself for not defrosting some of my homemade salsa to go with it!
    Firstly – my pork seemed a bit dried out. I am not sure if its because i left it in the slow cooker for 11 hours (no choice due to my work schedule and commute). or because after i shredded it (without onion… for no reason) i left it uncovered.
    secondly i forgot to buy cilantro. which is ok cause i kinda hate it anyways.
    Also my first tortilla came out like a pancake. which was delicious! so i added water to thin it out and make it easier to spread in the pan. i used coconut oil in the pan as i don’t trust a non-stick pan to do what it is supposed to.
    i will be definitely trying this out again with a few tweaks to suit my tastes as well as some smarter choices so my meat doesn’t dry out!

  9. cassie says:

    Is there another way to make the tortillas? My family and I did not like these at all. Too eggy and tast too much coconut.

    1. juli says:

      not that i have a recipe for as of now but other blogs have some tortilla recipes!

    So I saw this on your FB feed and I needed to do it asap. Like no crockpot pork butt 8 hrs cooking. I threw everything in a pot and cooked it on slow for 2hrs. Meanwhile did everything else and fried up some plaintain chips. The pork was to die for, I’m sure it’ll be even better in the crock pot cooking a lot longer and that sauce was great too. I’ll be adding jalapenos next time for some heat!
