I’ve mentioned before that we are huge BBQ pulled pork fans over here. I made a giant batch of my Crock Pot BBQ Pulled┬áPork last week. I was thankful for the leftovers in my fridge because an impromptu neighborhood dinner occurred, and I had enough meat to share. This happens in our neighborhood a lot…in this case, the husbands all had to work late, so a few friends and I gathered what we had in our fridges and put it all together to create a meal for the moms and all the kids. But rather than give everyone “leftovers”, I decided to put a new spin on this BBQ pulled pork. I turned the meat into the most amazing spicy BBQ pork quesadillas EVER.

Something about the flavor combination in these babies really hit the spot. The sweet, smoky BBQ sauce mixed with the spicy heat of the jalapeno relish, and the cool creamy ranch dressing for dipping…well…I’ll let you try for yourself. If you’re looking for a great, DIFFERENT way to use up some leftovers, this is the ticket. Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
Servings: quesadillas
Instructions
  1. Toss pork with BBQ sauce in a small bowl
  2. Shred cheese and set aside.
  3. Preheat a large griddle or frying pan.
  4. Place a tortilla on the pan. Add some cheese, a bit of the pork, 1 tablespoon of jalapeno relish (it's hot...use less if you aren't a fan of heat!), and top with a bit more cheese. Place another tortilla on top. If you're using jumbo tortillas, layer your ingredients on just half and then fold the tortilla over.
  5. Flip the quesadilla once the cheese is nice and melty and the tortilla is crisp and golden brown.
  6. Remove from heat, let it cool for 5 minutes. Cut into 4 pieces, and serve with ranch!
