How to Make Pulled Pork Burritos
I make these burritos when I have leftover pulled pork. It's tough for our family to go through a whole pork shoulder in one sitting. We freeze the leftovers in one-pound portions and then thaw out the individual servings when we want to make something delicious with the leftovers. This is a great example of that!
I really love cheese, so when I make pulled pork burritos I start by warming up a tortilla in a large cast-iron skillet, followed by a thin layer of cheese, and then another tortilla. Yeah, that's right, we're using a quesadilla for the shell of the pulled pork burrito. It might seem like overkill, but I promise it's not!
Once your quesadilla is ready add a little bit of pulled pork, pico de gallo, and black beans on top. Roll up the burrito, and enjoy!
