Smoked Chipotle Pulled Pork Quesadillas ~ Recipe

As you might have noticed, I’m on a slow cooker kick lately and this recipe is no exception.  You make the Smokey Chipotle Pulled Pork in your slow cooker during the day and then make the quesadillas right before you’re ready to eat.  You can also serve this pork just as it is on a hamburger bun or use it as a filling for tacos…’s very versatile.

Smoked Chipotle Pulled Pork Quesadillas
3-4 pound pork loin roast
1 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon oregano
1 teaspoon chile powder
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 cup chipotle salsa or 1 tablespoon of chipotle in adobo sauce (sauce part only)
Flour tortillas
Shredded Cheddar Jack Cheese or Mexican cheese blend
Place pork loin roast in slow cooker and top with onions, garlic, cumin, oregano, chile powder, and chipotle.  Set on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 5 hours.  
Once pork is cooked, remove from slow cooker and shred with two forks.  Return the pork back to the slow cooker to soak up all the juices.  This recipe makes a lot of pork, so you will only use part of it for the quesadillas.  Freeze remaining pork for later use or plan your weekly menu around other recipes using shredded pork.  
To assemble quesadillas, sprinkle shredded cheese on top of tortilla.

Place some of the pork mixture on top of the cheese on one side of the tortilla.  Heat skillet on medium and melt a little butter.  Once butter has melted place tortilla, as pictured above, into pan.
When the tortilla is in the pan, fold the cheese only side over on top of the pork mixture.  We don’t want to fold the quesadilla before it goes in the pan because then we won’t have butter on both sides of the tortilla.
Cook for about 3 minutes or until golden brown.  Flip quesadilla and cook until other side is golden brown.  Once both sides are cooked and cheese is melted, remove from pan and cut in half.
You can make as many of these as you would like or as many as your family can eat!

I like to serve these with some chipotle salsa, but you could dip them in any salsa your family enjoys.  Would also be great with some sour cream or guacamole as well.
Personally, I think two quesadillas is a perfect dinner serving and one is probably good for lunch.  Feel free to get creative here and add in any ingredients you would like.  
This pork is SO delicious, give it a try……’re going to love it!
