BBQ Quesadillas or Chimichangas

Our family loves BBQ!  And... we typically have it at least once a month.  Now we have a unique way to use up the leftovers.  I must say that the chimichangas are very addicting!  So if you enjoy pork as much as we do, here is another way to indulge your taste buds! 

shredded pork
cheddar cheese, shredded
chopped onion, sauteed (optional)
BBQ sauce (I use a homemade Sweet N Smokey)
corn or flour tortillas
butter or oil

Butter a corn or flour tortilla on one side.  Place it in a frying pan on medium heat.  Layer shredded pork, cheddar cheese, BBQ sauce, and onion.  Top with another corn or flour tortilla shell and butter top.  Once bottom is brown, flip with a spatula careful not to disturb pork and cheese.  Brown opposite side, remove from heat, and allow to set for 1 minute before slicing.  Enjoy!  You can serve this with extra BBQ sauce on the side.

Mix pork, cheese, onion, and BBQ sauce well.  Spoon desired amount of pork into the center of your tortilla shell.  (Careful not to over fill!)  Roll and secure with toothpicks.  In a skillet, saucepan, or deep fryer, fry filled tortillas in 1/2 inch oil about 1 minute on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels or newspaper.  Serve with BBQ sauce or sour cream.  (I mixed BBQ sauce and sour cream together as a dip.)
