Pulled Pork Quesadillas – Slow Cooker Style

Pulled pork quesadillas. A delicious slow cooker recipe made with a mexican twist! | The Bewitchin' Kitchen

I love pulled pork! Meat smothered in sweet and smokey BBQ sauce? I’m all in. I have noticed that pulled pork is becoming trendy. From pulled pork pizza to pulled pork mac n’ cheese. My original plan was to make a pulled pork sundae, but since I ran out of potatoes and was too lazy busy to run to the store, I thought I would try pulled pork quesadillas.

So why do I feel like pulled pork when it’s sad and rainy out? Simple: my house has two showings and I want it to smell like home cooking. Most people put on a Scentsy, and usually I do as well but the best feedback I ever had was when I had a roast in the slowcooker so I’m trying something different. If we get an offer, and the house sells then I’m packaging up the sent and calling it the house seller.

For the BBQ sauce, you can use whatever your favorite is. I wanted an excuse to make my paleo bbq sauce, so I made that up the day before (it only takes 25 minutes, but the longer it sits the better).
