I’m not a good leftover person. There’s no good reason for it; except if we have sloppy joes for dinner one night, I’m not really keen on having it the next night. (Lunch, maybe. But that’s a different story). 

I am, however, a pretty good dinner ‘reinventor.’ Taking portions of one dinner and ‘reinventing’ it into a new meal. Case in point, these BBQ Pork and Apple Grilled Quesadillas.

Quesadillas are always a kid-pleaser; but adult palates will love the smoky flavor of this meal. I have to admit that the quesadilla grill pan was a Target impulse buy, but we’ve gotten a ton of use out of it this summer. {Hello, easy clean-up!}

Quesadilla concocting is a great way to get the kids in on dinner prep. They can pick their own cheeses, proteins, veggies and even fruits to include.

Whether you’re grilling out back or pool-side, this fun ‘reinvention’ is a great way to reuse that leftover pulled pork from Sunday’s picnic. Weeknight dinner DONE in under 15 minutes. Enjoy!
