Pulled Pork:

  • 3–4 pound skinless, boneless pork shoulder or butt
  • 3/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 green Pepper, Quartered
  • 1/2 orange peel
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 2–3 cups pulled pork
  • 8-ounce bag Monterey jack or cheddar jack cheese
  • 3 Tacomex burrito flour tortillas
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, for cooking
  • 1–2 tablespoons butter, for cooking
  • Hot sauce, guacamole, salsa, and sour cream for serving


  • Begin with the succulent pulled pork. Rubbed with a tantalizing blend of paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir fry it on a pan and once golden brown move to a warm pot to finish cooking it.

  • Bathe it in pineapple juice and cumin and add in garlic, green pepper, red onion, paprika, and an orange peel for a great zest. Add in salt & pepper to taste.

  • Once the pork reaches the desired tenderness, it’s time to shred it into delectable strands. Seasoned to perfection, the pulled pork becomes the star of our quesadilla show.

  • Now, for the quesadillas themselves. In a skillet, sauté the vibrant red onions and bell peppers until tender and golden. Set them aside while you heat up the pulled pork in the same pan.

  • Assemble your quesadillas by layering cheese, peppers/onions, pork, green onions, and more cheese on one half of each tortilla. Fold over the other half, press down with a spatula, and cook until golden on both sides.

  • Slice into wedges and serve these flavor-packed Shredded Pork Quesadillas with a side of guacamole, salsa, hot sauce, and sour cream. Get ready to savor the perfect blend of textures and tastes in every bite – a symphony of cheesy, porky goodness that’s sure to become a household favorite. 🌯✨
