Ultimate Pulled Pork Quesadilla

Got leftover pulled pork?

A few weeks ago I made the Best Ever Pulled Pork recipe (see link to check it out) and of course it made so much that I had leftovers. Leftovers can be a blessing and a burden at the same time. When you are in a rush it’s great to have in the refrigerator. But sometimes you have that dish or meal that lasts forever and never seems to go away. When you are in a rush working and living your busy lives take advantage of those leftovers. I hate letting food go to waste!

I wanted to repurpose the pork so it seemed new and exciting as leftovers. Using a George Foreman indoor grill can be a good way to hide old leftovers in a tortilla. This pork didn’t really need to be hidden but it was still fun to eat.

Fill this Pulled Pork Quesadilla with your favorite flavors. We made a few different versions – some with black beans, corn, salsa, avocado, Mexican cheese, and of course pulled pork. Mix your favorite add ins to the middle of the tortilla. A really simple meal that is super filling and tasty.

Substitute grilled chicken or steak for the pork if that’s what you have in your refrigerator.

What you need:

  • Leftover “Best Ever Pulled Pork”
  • Large flour tortilla (whole wheat is a good option also) 1 per person
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced and sautéed
  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 avocado sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheese
  • 1 can corn
  • salsa optional

What to do:

  1. Take a large flour tortilla and put a generous portion of Best Ever Pulled pork, a portion of peppers, a sprinkle of beans, corn, 2 strips of thin avocado, cheese, and salsa if desired. Fold in half and place in George Foreman indoor grill.
  2. No need to flip just cook until grill marks appear on the Quesadilla and cheese is melted.
