This is a Pasta Princess original recipe. I had some frozen pulled pork (recipe here) in the freezer and was thinking of a different way to eat it rather than just putting it on a bun and came up with Pulled Pork Quesadillas. I canned peach salsa this past summer and thought it would go great with pork. I loved these! Give them a try – I hope you like them as much as I did. It’s like putting sunshine on your plate! Enjoy!
Pulled Pork Quesadilla with Peach Salsa – Sunshine on Your Plate
Makes 2 Very Large Quesadillas
- 2 Red Peppers
- 2 cups Pulled Pork or enough to cover each tortilla
- 1 Bag Shredded Mexican Cheese (16 oz.)
- 2 Large flour tortillas
- 1 Jar of Peach Salsa
- Cilantro (topping)
- Sour Cream or Plain Green Yogurt (topping)
Spray a saute pan with non-stick spray and chop red pepper into small pieces and saute until tender crisp. Add pulled pork and 1 cup of peach salsa and cook until heated through.
Use another frying pan large enough to lay your tortilla in. Spray with non-stick cooking spray and heat tortilla over medium low heat. Spread 1/4 cup shredded cheese on the tortilla and top with 1/2 the pulled pork mixture. Sprinkle another 1/4 cup cheese over the pork and top with another tortilla. When bottom tortilla is lightly brown and cheese has started to melt, flip quesadilla and cook on the opposite side. Remove quesadilla from skillet and cut into quarters. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve quesadillas with sour cream or plain greek yogurt, remaining peach salsa and cilantro.Tip: When flipping quesadilla put a dinner plate over the pan with the quesadilla and flip onto plate then just slide onto the pan to heat the other side.
