Pork and Mango Quesadillas

Pork Mango Quesadillas

Leftovers never tasted so good!
Quick, easy  …  and so very versatile.
Change the cheese, change the fruit …you could even substitute leftover chicken for the pork ….
Pull it together with some Thai chill sauce  … or some salsa
Or, if you have a friend like Elizabeth, you could use her Peach and Pepper Jelly to bring everything together in a flavourful way …
 (Thanks, Elizabeth!!)
