Guess what! Pork shoulder was on sale this weekend! Why do I get so excited you ask? Well because when pork shoulder is on sale that means that I get to make pulled pork and in case you are not aware, pulled pork is one of the most delicious things ever. When cooked right its succulent, flavorful and melts in your mouth. Another one of the wonderful things about pulled pork is that is so versatile, you can make tacos, appetizers, BBQ sandwiches and Asian sandwiches. And if that wasn’t enough, you can also make these chili pork quesadillas with green chilies, Asadero cheese and fresh guacamole.
This is a pretty budget friendly recipe but it does take a little pre-planning because it requires already prepared pulled pork. Below I’ve included a link to a recipe that I posted a little while back. I always prepare a rather large batch of it when I do make pulled pork for one very simple reason: Ryan and I usually get at least 2 dinners and a few lunches out of it. And when you can get that many meals out of one cut of meat that costs less than $10 I’d say its a pretty good thing.
I also served these with a chipotle dipping sauce. Give it a go if you want to give this dish a kick.
