BBQ Pulled Pork Quesadilla, soft flour tortillas are filled with tender pulled smoked pork, spicy barbecue sauce, and gooey cheddar cheese. It’s a simple and easy recipe for lunch or busy weeknight meals.

I tried to make this recipe as simple and quick as possible so that you can whip it up in less than 10 minutes with ingredients you already have on hand.

This is a great recipe for leftover smoked Boston butt. However, you don’t have to actually make Boston butt to enjoy this pulled pork recipe. You can buy smoked pulled pork from a restaurant to make the quesadillas. Don’t hate. It’s the same as buying a rotisserie chicken for a recipe. By the way, I do that all the time. It’s a great time-saver.

You can also use quesabirria in quesadillas and, let me just tell you, it’s out-of-this-world good!! 

In addition to sandwiches, you can make quesadillas or soft tacos with pulled pork. Pork would also be tasty on this Ranch Sauce Pizza instead of chicken.

This is a mega easy recipe.

Optional, for a little more kick try Candied Jalapenos, Pickled Red Onions, and/or (Are you ready for this?) pineapple in your quesadilla. Sweet pineapple chunks make a scrumptious addition to your quesadilla!

Try adding sliced avocado for a hint of creaminess and boost of healthy fats.

Another option is to use chicken or turkey for the protein. Using roasted or grilled leftover chicken or turkey in quesadillas are yummy and a great way to use those leftovers.

My Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce would be tasty on a quesadilla, but if you don’t have time to make it, by all means, pick up a bottle at the grocer.

For a low carb version, serve with these low carb tortillas.

You can always play around with different cheese options. I think pepper jack would taste great.

With sandwiches, quesadillas, etc. I hate to put exact amounts of filling ingredients. We all like different amounts and it should be up to you! Personally, like my quesadillas with a lot of cheese and a little meat.
