Super Easy BBQ Quesadillas
With less than a week until Super Bowl Sunday, it’s time to tackle the most important detail – THE FOOD! While it’s fun to try new appetizers, most people don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen pulling together their game day buffet. If that’s how you feel, these Super Easy BBQ Quesadillas are for you! Just pan-brown tortillas filled with ready-made BBQ pulled pork and queso fresco cheese. Then drizzle with balsamic syrup (very easy to make) and top with fruit salsa (which you can make or buy.) Very easy, yet a cut above a frozen pizza or cocktail weenies.
Tony Roma Pulled Pork
I’ve tried a few different BBQ pulled pork products over the years, some tasting better than others. For this recipe, I tried Tony Roma’s Kansas City Pulled Pork with Sweet Hickory BBQ Sauce. It was very good. In fact, Mike and I both thought it was the best option we’ve found so far. I spotted this product at a grocery store on Maui, but I understand that Walmart carries it as well.
Fruit Salsa Options
This recipe, which originates from the At Home with Kowalski’s magazine, called for fresh mango salsa from their deli. A jar of peach salsa would be an another easy-to-find option. I decided to whip up a fresh papaya salsa, which melded very nicely with the rest of the quesadilla flavors. This salsa can also be modified to use fresh mango or pineapple, or even canned pineapple.
In true transparency – having this recipe taste as good as it did brightened my culinary psyche. A pasta dish I had planned to blog a few days ago turned out to be a bust. But if you experiment frequently, you occasionally have a dud. No worries on this recipe however. It’s as close to fool-proof as you can get!
