Kalua Pork Quesadillas With Tomato and Avocado Salsa

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by lazyme

From Chefs Russell Siu and James Gillespie of 3660 On The Rise and Kakaako Kitchen. The site wouldn't take moo shu wrappers, so the ingredient listed is wonton wrappers which would be too small for this.

These were delicious, especially with that homemade salsa! A little tedious to make, and I used regular butter instead of clarified. Have no idea what kalua pork is, but I used pulled pork. Great way to sneak in a veggie, my kids loved the quesadillas and didn't ask about the cabbage being inside. Made this for celebrating Hawaii's independence, searched Hawaiin recipes. Loved the fact that this was different, but the real star was the salsa.
