BBQ Pork Quesadillas

I am all about easy, breezy in the kitchen.

If there’s one thing easier than dinner with the crockpot, it’s probably dinner with quesadillas!  I love how these lovely folded things have lately surfaced into mainstream with the help of food trucks and the internet!  The internet is exactly where I got the idea of making these super easy BBQ quesadillas.  Enjoy!

You’ll need:

1 lb or so of boneless, country style pork ribs
good amount of house seasoning (salt, pepper, garlic powder)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup of premade BBQ sauce of your choice (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Hickory & Brown Sugar)
8in flour tortillas
shredded Mexican blend cheese

optional:
sour cream
jalapeños
extra BBQ sauce for dipping

The process:

  1. Put ribs in a shallow bowl and pour the olive oil over.  Go ahead and splash a good amount of house seasoning onto the pork.  Rub a dub dub.  Set aside for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Set your slow cooker on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.  Place ribs in the cooker and let it be for a while.
  3. With 30 minutes left in cooking time, pour your choice BBQ sauce all over the pork and mix.  Any shredding that occurs is okay at this point.
  4. When cooking is finished, set the meat aside and mash with a fork.  Heat a medium-sized cast iron skillet.
  5. Fill one side of a tortilla with the meat and a handful of shredded cheese.  Fold over and place on the hot skillet.  Cook one side until lightly brown and crisp, then flip.  Cook until heated through and cheese is completely melted.
  6. Cut in half to serve.  Enjoy with a dollop of Daisy or spice up with some fresh jalapeños.
