Slowed Cooked Pork BBQ Quesadillas


Need a quick Cinco de Mayo recipe idea?   Here is a super super easy one!  Last weekend my husband smoked a large pork shoulder using some mesquite wood.  It was delicious.  We ate it all week long.  SWEET SMOKEY GOODNESS!

With just two of us eating on 4 pounds of meat I came up with 3 extra ways to use the meat.  These are great ways to use a lot of pork without repeating a recipe!  🙂

1. I made bbq pork quesadillas with honey bbq sauce, sharp cheddar, onions and cilantro.

2. Next, I made hot grilled cheese sandwiches with pork bbq sauce, provolone, and onion.  Delicious!!!!  😀

3.  The last 1/4 pound of the meat was used in a scandalous Loaded Potato Soup in place of the bacon!

Slow Cooked Pork BBQ Quesadillas


  • Fresh Homemade Tortillas
  • Sharp Cheddar
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Sliced Yellow Onion
  • Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce
  • Smoked Pork (chopped or sliced) (Buy by the pound at your local BBQ joint)


  • Heat a skillet on medium heat.
  • Drizzle BBQ sauce on one tortilla.
  • Lay some pork, onion, cilantro, and finally cheddar on top of the BBQ Sauce.
  • Top with a 2nd tortilla.
  • Use cooking spray to coat the top tortilla. (You could use butter or spread)
  • Carefully lay the quesadilla greased side down into the hot skillet.
  • While the quesadilla cooks, spray the other tortilla.
  • Cook until gooey and hot inside!

  1. My stomach is growling….we LOOOOOVE BBQ pork quesadillas! And Sweet Baby Ray’s is my all time favorite sauce, we can’t get it here in New Zealand and I’ve been missing it in a real bad way.
