Pork Butt Dishes

As you know by now, I’m a BBQ’er and regularly smoke a pork butt for us to make into a variety of dishes, one of which was the Posole I recently posted about.  We rarely eat just a pulled pork sandwich but usually prefer to make other dishes – usually Tex-Mex such as these three by Bev.

Pork burrito for breakfast.

Pulled pork quesadillas for supper with some pintos made into refried beans by mashing and adding Rotel and cheese.


The next one she made was using the leftover posole.  It was a flour tortilla topped with leftover refried beans, then the leftover posole, all heated individually, then a little tomatillo sauce.
 
Finally topped with two over easy eggs and some garnishment.

I thought the posole was delicious as made, but when used like this, it was over the top.

I'm now responding to your comments and hoping you will stop back by - photos best if enlarged by clicking on them.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. It all looks delicious, except maybe the last one haha!! Haven't been able to eat eggs on top of stuff like hash or anything other than hash browns. Maybe I should branch out! I sure do love Mexican food though and pork is a favorite ingredient. I'm not much of a cook so I enjoy looking at the way you do things.

    1. Thanks Sam but Bev created all of these with just a little help from me on the third one. You can tell hers as they always have more effort put into them than mine.

  6. I love the combination of refried beans with Rotel and cheese. You can put anything on top of that and make me happy. But being a "GRITS" you know I love me some pork butt! These all look very delicious. Merry Christmas to you and Bev!

  7. This is a good way to make really good beans. It took me a few minutes to figure out "GRITS"

  14. Pork butt is one of our favorites, but I'm shocked to say that we never have any leftovers! Just shocked! OK, maybe not really. Merry Christmas, Larry and Bev.

  15. All of those looks superb, Larry! That breakfast burrito looks like I could eat it for dinner and be happy. I'm just about out of pulled pork in the freezer, don't know how that happened. Time to fire one up this week.
