Notes

  • This recipe makes four quesadillas and I cook them one at a time. If you want to keep them warm you can place the cooked ones on a sheet pan and pop them in a warm oven while you finish the rest.
  • This recipe easily scales up or down depending on how many you want to make!
  • You can serve them just as they are or add a dipping sauce on the side - some extra BBQ sauce works great or try some homemade ranch dip, too!
  • They are best when they are made - the leftovers don't keep well because the tortillas get soggy when they sit in the fridge. So, it's the perfect excuse to eat them all in one sitting! Trust me, we have no problem doing that!
  • I love to use boneless pork shoulder, but you can also use Boston butt or pork loin. I have a lot of details about making it in my crockpot pulled pork post so be sure to check it out!
