BBQ Pulled Pork Quesadillas

The following recipe and photography were provided by local blogger Carolyn Hodges of The Dinner Shift.

Look no further than Heinen’s Prepared Foods Department for a wide selection of dinner shortcuts!

From seasoned and cooked proteins to fresh and flavorful sides, they have everything you need to get dinner on the table in minutes.

You can build an entire meal out of these items, or incorporate them into your own recipes, like I’m doing here. Made with Heinen’s barbeque pulled pork, these quesadillas are ready in about 10 minutes and super family friendly. Simply heat the prepared pork, fold in some canned black beans, and toast between whole grain tortillas with shredded colby jack cheese (cheddar and pepperjack work great, too). I like to serve these with a side of fresh pineapple and crispy coleslaw.
