  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using ground beef, follow same instructions as sliced pork in Step 2, seasoning with garlic salt and a pinch of pepper and breaking up until beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as sliced pork in Step 2, seasoning with garlic salt and a pinch of pepper and breaking up until turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Thinly slice pickles.

    Pat sliced pork dry. Coarsely chop, then separate pieces. Season all over with garlic salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Filling

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add pork and white portions of green onions to hot pan. Stir occasionally until browned and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

    Add half the BBQ sauce (reserve remaining for garnish) and 2 Tbsp. water. Stir until pork is coated, 30-60 seconds.

    Remove from burner. Rest, 3 minutes.

    Transfer pork to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  3. 3

    Assemble the Quesadillas

    Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm, 15-30 seconds.

    Carefully remove from microwave. Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Divide cheese equally over half of each tortilla. Top evenly with filling, pickles, and mustard. Fold tortillas in half, pressing gently to adhere.

  4. 4

    Cook the Quesadillas

    Return pan used to cook pork to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Working in batches, place two or three quesadillas in hot pan (there should be no overlap). Cook until golden brown, 2-4 minutes per side.

    Repeat with remaining quesadillas, adding 1 tsp. olive oil for each batch.

    Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Make Salsa and Finish Dish

    Add corn and a pinch of salt to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until heated through, 30-60 seconds.

    Carefully remove from microwave. Stir in green portions of green onions.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, halving quesadillas, if desired. Top with remaining BBQ sauce and salsa. Bon appétit!
