Feature Friday: Cafe Rio Recipes

Cafe Rio Recipes from FavFamilyRecipes.com #caferio

Never Miss a Recipe!  Follow Us:
Since our Cafe Rio Recipes have been such a big hit around the internet and Pinterest, we thought we would do all of you a favor and compile them ALL in one easy-to-find post (and just in time for Cinco de Mayo). Nowadays there are quite a few Cafe Rio Copycat Recipes floating around out there but we are proud to be the home of the ORIGINAL Copycat Cafe Rio Recipes (… If there is such a thing as an “original” copycat.. I guess that’s kind of an oxymoron)! When I first posted the sweet pork recipe back in 2007 I couldn’t find a copycat recipe anywhere (at least one that looked somewhat accurate) so I created my own. Eventually we started coming up with more and more recipes until we got ourselves quite the collection. We have had some great feedback and very positive reviews on all the recipes– check em’ out and then add your own comments after you try them! We love hearing from our readers! ENJOY!

  1. There are three recipes I would love to see on here, since they are part of our favorite Cafe Rio dishes (perhaps I missed them though): Shredded Roast beef, green mild enchilada sauce, and the red hot sauce. Thanks for what is already here!

  2. Do you know about how much the beans, dressing, and pork this will feed? I am planning on cooking this for a group of about 25 people.

  3. I cannot access any of these recipes. I keep getting error messages. Thanks for any help getting them back on the web!

  4. It was mentioned on your site that you can buy a cookbook with all the Cafe Rio recipes. How do I go about ordering one rather than print each recipe out? Thanks, Shelly

  5. I saw the guacamole recipe, you mentioned barbacoa. I love that place. Have you come up with their salsa verde and chips recipes?

    • In the top right-hand side of our site you will see an image of our book. You can click on that and link you to Amazon where you can buy it! Thanks for your interest!

  6. Hi, I was hoping to make both the sweet pork and the cilantro rice tonight; however, it says that the links are not working! Have you moved these pages?
