Baked Pulled Pork Fajitas January 19, 2013

I love making slow food, really low and slow food. The other day, my husband took a 7 pound pork shoulder and cooked it all day on the grill. It was delicious, it had a perfect bark, the sauce was great, the texture perfect. One problem: there are only two of us and there was 7 pounds of meat. Time to get creative. Although it’s great on its own, in sandwiches, maybe a stir fry, or fried rice, I just wanted something different. I look around my pantry and fridge and figured make some sort of Southern, Texan, Mexican, baked thing. It was pretty darn good so I’m putting this out there as a base idea for another use of leftover pork!

Baked Pulled Pork Fajitas

Ingredients

  • 2 small flour fajitas
  • leftover pulled pork
  • favorite barbecue sauce or hot sauce
  • Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 small celery parts with leaves
  • salsa

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lay out fajitas and add a heaping tablespoon to the middle of fajita. Add some extra barbecue or hot sauce. Sprinkle with cheese, about 1 tsp. or to taste. Top with one of the celery parts each.
  2. Roll the fajitas as tight as possible and place in a baking dish large enough to accommodate the fajitas.
  3. Top with salsa, a dash or two more of desired sauce, cheese (about 1 Tbsp. for now, will add more later).
  4. Place in oven and cook, uncovered for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, add more cheese and continue to cook about 5 minutes or until all cheese is melted. Enjoy!

Cheese Rarebit June 19, 2012

Yum!
This is one of my favorite comfort foods. You can’t go wrong with bread and cheese! Quick and easy, takes about 10 – 15 minutes start to finish. Serves about 6 unless you eat like my husband and I.
