Ingredients needed to make Slow Cooker Short Rib Quesadillas:
- 1-2 pounds boneless short ribs
- 1 cup chipotle salsa
- ½ onion sliced
- 2 cups beef stock
- 6 large flour tortillas
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 3 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
- cojita cheese optional
How to make these yummy Short Rib Quesadillas:
In a slow cooker, place meat, salsa, onion and beef stock. Cook on high for 2-3 hours.
Remove meat from slow cooker, shred, and place back in the slow cooker for 30 minutes.
With a slotted spoon, remove meat and onions from the slow cooker and set aside.
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Place one tortilla in the bottom, then top with 1 cup cheese and 1/3 of the meat mixture and place a second tortilla on top. Cook until cheese starts to melt and the tortilla starts to brown (about 3-4 minutes), and then flip the quesadilla and brown the other side (about 3-4 minutes).
Repeat two more times.
Cut into triangles and serve warm with chipotle aioli.
