Description

These pork quesadillas with green chile are cooked in the oven on a sheet pan. This is an easy way to make four quesadillas at a time – the tortillas crisp up under the broiler so they’re hot, cheesy, and toasty when they come out of the oven.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 ounces ground pork
  • 1 (4-oz) can diced green chiles
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar and Monterey jack cheese blend

For Serving


Instructions

  1. Brown the pork in a large nonstick skillet until it’s no longer pink. Add the green chile, chili powder, dried oregano, onion powder, and garlic powder. Stir and cook it all for a couple of minutes.
  2. Lay the tortillas flat on an ungreased sheet pan. Place half of the cheese on half of each of the tortillas. Top the cheese with the pork and green chile and then sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top. Fold the tortillas over and lightly press down on them so they stay folded.
  3. Move an oven rack to the top position. Turn on the broiler and then place the sheet pan in the oven. Broil the quesadilla until they start to turn golden and crispy on top. Carefully turn them over and broil them on the other side until crispy and golden in spots.
  4. Slice each quesadilla in half for serving. Place on a serving platter and garnish with chopped cilantro, if using. Serve with the sour cream and salsa, if using.
