These satisfying quesadillas get a smoky flavor from the cheese and pork, sweetness from the sauce, and a crisp crunch from the red onion. The pickled jalapeños offer a twist on a typical barbecue sandwich pickle and add a touch of heat.

A delicious easy and fast recipe to make! A great way to use up leftover pulled pork from last night's dinner. I opted to use banana peppers instead of jalapeno peppers and I used a light sour cream. It all came together easily and hubby loved it! I served a medium salsa with it along with some sweet pineapple on the side. Deeeelicious! Read More
