Barbecued Pork Quesadillas

Barbecued Pork Quesadillas

1/2 pound shredded barbecued pork
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
5 green onions, minced
8 (6-inch) flour tortillas
1 cup shredded Mexican four-cheese blend
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
Toppings: sour cream, sliced green onions, barbecue sauce
Garnish: fresh cilantro sprig

Stir together first 4 ingredients. Spoon pork mixture evenly on 1 side of
each tortilla; sprinkle with cheese. Fold tortillas in half, pressing gently
to seal. Spread butter on both sides of quesadillas.

Heat a large nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium heat, and cook
quesadillas 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Cut each
quesadilla in half for main-dish servings or in quarters for appetizer
servings. Serve with desired toppings. Garnish, if desired.

Yield Makes 4 to 6 main-dish or 8 to 12 appetizer servings
