Slow Cooked Beef and Mango Quesadillas

Sweet mangoes pair perfectly with smokey barbecue sauce and cheddar cheese.  Who said you can’t use the slow cooker during the summer?  Makes 4 quesadillas.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 pounds top-of-the-round beef roast
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 4 large whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 large mango, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese

What you’ll do:

  • Combine the beef and barbecue sauce in a slow cooker.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 6 hours.
  • When done, shred the meat by pulling against the grain with 2 forks.
  • To assemble the quesadillas, on one half of the tortilla, spread 1/2 cup beef, 1/4 of the mango, 1/4 of the onion and 1/4 cup cheese.
  • Fold the empty half over the full half and grill about 2-3 minutes each side or until the cheese has melted.
