my 10/31 party menu and need burrito meat recipe

Every year we have a big halloween party, and food is a must. It needs to be good food, that I want to eat as well, because we are busy decorating our haunted house all day that I don't eat all day. This year my menu is:

Giant catapillar burritos (Im going to use those large green tortillas to make a party size burrito, Im going to use olives etc to make a face on the front of it)

Nachos

A standing ghost cake covered in fondant

pudding cups with cookie crumb tops with gummy worms in clear dixie cups

blood shot deviled eggs

and chips and dip



For the burrito Im going to do beans, cheese, rice and meat. If anyone has a good meat recipe for the crock pot I'd love to have it.

Wow, sounds like fun! I remember one year we did frozen ice cubes in rubber gloves so we had dismembered hands floating in our punch.

Get a cheap pork or beef roast, brown it on all sides, and put it in the crock pot with a whole bottle of Goya Mojo marinade. It's available at any grocery store in Southern California. Let it cook on low overnight, and shred it. It's fantastic, I've made it a ton of times.
