ingredients

  • ½ package of pulled pork
  • 1 zucchini, cut into rounds
  • 1 lime, for the juice
  • ½ cup (125 ml) cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 2 packages string cheese
  • 2 10-inch (25 cm) tortillas
  • Vegetable oil, for cooking

instructions

  1. Heat the pulled pork as indicated on the package.
  2. When the pork is hot, pull it into strands using 2 forks, return the meat to its sauce and keep warm.
  3. Heat a bit of vegetable oil in a pan over medium-high heat and fry the zucchini slices until golden brown.
  4. Place the still-warm zucchini slices in a bowl, pour over the lime juice, add salt and pepper and cilantro and mix well.
  5. Pull the cheese into strings.
  6. Place 1 tortilla on a work surface and top with the pulled pork.
  7. Add the zucchini-cilantro mixture, top with cheese and cover with the second tortilla.
  8. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and toast the quesadillas for 3 minutes. Place a plate over the quesadillas, flip the pan over in one motion, then slide the quesadilla carefully back into the pan to turn over. Cook another 3 minutes.
  9. Cut the quesadilla into wedges and serve immediately.
