South Meets West Quesadillas
By Paula Deen
- Prep time: 10 minutes
- Cook time: 10 minutes
- Servings: 10
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup chopped red onion
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 lb shredded barbecue pork
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
- 8 (10 inch) flour tortillas
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.
