1. Prepare the pulled pork 

If you're using leftover pulled pork, you can skip this step. Otherwise, you'll need to cook the pork. You can use a slow cooker or pressure cooker for this. Season the pork with salt, pepper, and your favorite spices. Cook until the pork is tender and easily shreddable.

2. Shred the pork 

Once the pork is cooked, shred it using two forks or your fingers. Remove any excess fat or bone if necessary.

4. Assemble the quesadillas 

Take one flour tortilla and sprinkle a layer of shredded cheese evenly over half of the tortilla. Then add a generous portion of pulled pork on top of the cheese. If desired, add any additional toppings such as diced onions, bell peppers, or jalapeños.
