Servings: 8 Preparation Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: Approx. 5 minutes
1 pound cooked Smithfield Lean Generation Pork roast, chopped
1 cup grated reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
1-2 jalapeno peppers (optional) seeded and minced (Use rubber gloves when handling hot peppers)
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
8-10-inch flour tortillas
Preheat oven 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large bowl mix together the pork, cheese, jalapeno, onion, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Arrange one-eighth of the filling on half of each tortilla. Fold each tortilla over to make a half-moon. Place quesadillas, not touching, on shallow baking pans. Bake until quesadillas are crisp and golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board, cut into wedges, and serve with salsa.
Important: Smithfield Lean Generation Pork cooks 15-20% faster than ordinary pork. Do not overcook.
