Spray a large non-stick skillet with Pam (or use butter, but pictured using Pam). First quickly heat up your pork in the pan so that it is hot when you add it to the quesadilla. Remove from the pan. Spray again with Pam and add the tortilla. Place the cheese over the entire tortilla and add the pork to half of the tortilla (as pictured). Cook until the cheese starts to melt. Fold over and cook, flipping as needed, until both sides of the tortilla are crispy and light brown. Serve with salsa, sour cream and avocados.
