Tim Love overstuffs his quesadillas with delectable braised pork and sautéed onions and peppers, then goes (almost) over the top by smearing the tortillas with soft, tangy goat cheese.  More Mexican Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large, deep skillet, heat the 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Add the bell peppers and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until softened, about 10 minutes. Add the jalapeño, onion and garlic, cover and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the Braised Pork Shanks and gravy and cook for 3 minutes longer.

Step 2    

Arrange the tortillas on a surface and spread a thin layer of goat cheese over each one. Spoon the pork and bell pepper mixture over the goat cheese and fold the tortillas in half. Brush the tortillas with oil.

Step 3    

Heat 2 large skillets and preheat the oven to 300°. Working in batches, cook the tortillas over moderate heat, turning once, until crisp, about 7 minutes. Transfer the quesadillas to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Cut the quesadillas in half and serve right away.
