For Pulled Pork
  • 4 lbs pork shoulder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 orange

  • 1 jalapeño
  • 4-5 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
Pico De Gallo
  • 3 roma tomatoes

For the Quesadialla assembly
  • 2 cups pico de gallo
  • 8 flour tortilla
  • 1 cup cheddar- jack cheese
  • 1 cup guacamole optional
  • ½ canned black bean
  • hot sauce to taste


Slow Cook Pulled Pork
  • rubbed pork shoulder
    Rub seasoning on the pork.
  • Tender pulled pork
    In a slow cooker, add seasoned pork, halves orange, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and jalapeño. Slow cooking with high heat for 6 hours or low heat for 8 hours.
  • shredded pulled pork
    The pork is fork tender when done and easy to pull apart with a fork. Save the sauce (liquid) in the pot for a gravy or bbq sauce later. Don’t throw it away :). Shred the pork with a fork or a hand mixer. I think using a fork is easier and less messy.
Make Pico De Gallo
  • diced tomatoes
    Dice tomatoes, jalapeño, and onion. Set them aside in a bowl.
  • Add fresh lime juice, salt, and cilantro.Mix well and chill while waiting for pulled pork to be ready.
Assemble Quesadilla
  • Browning pork
    Add some more brown to the meat by browning it in a skillet for 5-10 minutes before assembling the quesadilla.
  • Assemble quesadilla
    on the non stick skillet (medium heat), lay a tortilla, cheese, meat, and pico detallo. When cheese starting to melt and the tortillas begin to crisp, fold it in half and flip.
  • crispy quesadilla
    Enjoy with a hot sauce of your choice. You can add some guacamole and black beans in the filling as you wish :).
