Pulled Pork and Pineapple BBQ Quesadillas

It took me a while to get my group of guys to buy-in on the meat and fruit thing in this recipe, but once they gave it a fair try, it was ALL OVER.  The combination of pork, pineapple, and jalapeno with a bit of jazzy BBQ sauce is just divine.  But don’t take my word for it – taste and see for yourself, please! 

8 flour tortillas
melted butter
2 cups grilled pineapple chunks
2 cups cooked, shredded pulled pork
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2-2 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
1 jalapeno, seeds and membranes removed, sliced
fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup your favorite BBQ saucez
Sour cream, pico de gallo, and extra cilantro, for garnish

Place griddle or grill pan over medium heat and add a bit of butter; place a couple of tortillas onto preheated pan (whatever will fit comfortably) and sprinkle a bit of cheese onto one side of each tortilla.

Arrange pork evenly on top of cheese, then use a pastry brush to dab BBQ sauce onto pork; top with pineapple chunks, jalapenos, and cilantro.  Fold tortillas over filling and grill until golden brown on each side.   Place prepared quesadillas onto a platter and reserve to keep warm.  Repeat process with remaining ingredients.

To serve, top warm quesadillas with with sour cream, pico de gallo, and extra cilantro, as desired.
