Chile Pork Quesadilla Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil plus more for cooking quesadilla
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion diced
  • 1 4 ounce can diced green chilies
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Asadero cheese you can substitute monterey jack if you prefer
  • 4 burrito size flour tortillas

Chipotle Dipping Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 2 - 3 chipotle peppers in adobo chopped
  • kosher salt


  • To make the chipotle dipping sauce, combine sour cream, mayonnaise and chipotle peppers in a bowl. Chill for 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt.
  • Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook just until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in pork and green chilies. Cook just until warmed through. Reduce heat to low.
  • In a large skillet heat enough olive oil just to lightly coat the bottom of the pan.
  • While oil is heating, assemble the quesadilla. Place one tortilla on a flat surface, layer half of the cheese, half of the pork mixture and half of the guacamole and place another tortilla on top. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • Cook in the heated skillet until flour tortillas have browned and cheese has melted. About 2 minutes per side.
  • Slice and serve.
