Pulled Pork Quesadillas
This dish is melt in your mouth, delicious!! It is the perfect recipe for using up leftover pulled pork from the night before! Pulled pork is my sweetheart’s favorite dish!! For this dish, you can certainly buy the pulled pork from your grocery store already made, if they have it. The homemade pulled pork is so worth it though!Make this for lunch or dinner for the family and serve it with salsa, guacamole, and sour cream! You can also make this with shredded rotisserie chicken, if you don’t have shredded pork.
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for cooking quesadilla
1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
2 cups pulled pork
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies
1 1/2 cups shredded Asadero cheese (you can substitute monterey jack if you prefer)
1 cup guacamole
4 burrito size flour tortillas
Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook just until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in pork and green chilies. Cook just until warmed through. Reduce heat to low.
In a large skillet heat enough olive oil just to lightly coat the bottom of the pan.
While oil is heating, assemble the quesadilla. Place one tortilla on a flat surface, layer half of the cheese, half of the pork mixture and half of the guacamole and place another tortilla on top. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Cook in the heated skillet until flour tortillas have browned and cheese has melted. About 2 minutes per side.
Slice and serve!
