Cuban Sandwich Quesadillas



I'm packing my bags.

Getting ready to go.

To see my sweet fam.

In Id-A-Ho!

I won't be around.

For a month or two.

But rest assured.

I'll be thinking of you!

So have a great summer.

Keep making great food.

Soak up that sunshine.

And I'll see you soon!

These quesadillas are made with a pork cooked in the crockpot. They are so easy and quick to make, and the pork is AMAZING. A great weeknight family pleaser for sure.

Cuban Sandwich Quesadillas
By Skinnytaste (LOVE HER!)

Ingredients

1 oz slow cooked Pernil

1 slice reduced fat swiss (I used Sargento)
1 oz ham (I uses Hillshire Farm 97% fat free)
1 slice kosher pickle
mustard
6 inch low carb whole wheat tortilla (La Tortilla Factory)

Directions

Heat a non-stick pan over low heat. Spray with cooking spray and place tortilla on pan (I used my panini press). On half of the tortilla, place a piece of cheese, pork, ham, pickle and mustard. When cheese is melted, fold the quesadilla in half and flip to heat other side. Remove from heat and cut into 3 pieces.



See you in a few months!
