Servings: 8
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 35 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter
1 pound shredded barbecue pork
1 cup shredded Cheddar
1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
8 flour tortillas (10 inches)





In a medium bowl, combine the barbecue sauce and sour cream for the dipping sauce.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saute until browned, about 7 minutes. Transfer the onions to a small bowl and wipe the skillet clean. Add 1 tablespoon butter and the pork to the skillet and cook until heated through. Transfer the pork to a plate.

Arrange the onions, pork, cheeses and cilantro evenly on one side of each tortilla. Fold the tortillas over to cover the filling.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet. Place 2 folded tortillas in the skillet and cook until browned and the cheese melts, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook the other side until browned, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer to plates. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas and butter.

Cut the quesadillas into wedges and serve with the dipping sauce.

Every thing Paula makes HAS to be good. Paula is the best.

By Ida Dohoney on July 05, 2013


I have been grilling with a friend this summer and was interested in the Grilling Seasonal Vegetables. Just want something new to try. I done corn, tomatoes, onions and potatoes. I keep trying new things. Got any spicy sauces to put on the veggies after they have been grilled. Cilantro is big here as a butter good.
