I have to tell you guys, these past couple of weeks have been brutal. Brutally busy that is. It is definitely a GOOD busy – lots of exciting design, photography and blog projects in the works. But this also coincided with my daughter’s 10th birthday, half term and just general upheaval – it is always all or nothing when it comes to life as a freelancer. I have to confess that some days I have skipped lunch and on a couple of occasions I had cheese and crackers instead of a cooked dinner. But here’s the thing… I quite enjoy the occasional cheese & cracker feast! We are all cheese lovers in our household, down to Brutus (the dog) whose favourite treat is cheddar. And when it comes to cheddar, we tend to go for the products like Cathedral City Mature which has a distinctive, smooth and creamy taste.
I have teamed up with Cathedral City to create a recipe to showcase their their delicious mature cheddar and after nibbling on rather a lot of it – for research purposes of course – I decided that a cheesy quesadilla would be just the thing! Add slow-cooked pulled pork, black beans and avocado and you have the kind of meal that practically disappears off the plate before said plate has a chance to hit the dinner table.
Cheesy Pulled Pork, Black Bean and Avocado Quesadillas
Depending on how generous you are with the fillings, you may end up with more quesadillas than specified above.
You can use refried beans instead of black beans and shredded rotisserie chicken instead of the pulled pork if you prefer.
