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
- 2 small flour fajitas
- leftover pulled pork
- favorite barbecue sauce or hot sauce
- Mexican cheese blend
- 2 small celery parts with leaves
- 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.
- Roll the fajitas as tight as possible and place in a baking dish large enough to accommodate the fajitas.
- Top with salsa, a dash or two more of desired sauce, cheese (about 1 Tbsp. for now, will add more later).
- 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!
