Honey-Citrus Pork Quesadillas

Directions

  1. For marinade, in a small bowl stir together the 1/2 cup lime juice, 2 tablespoons cilantro, the honey, and garlic. Place chops in a large resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Pour marinade over chops in bag; seal bag. Turn to coat chops. Marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Drain chops, discarding marinade.
  2. For a charcoal grill, grill chops, onion slices, and pepper quarters on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill vegetables for 5 to 7 minutes or until browned and crisp-tender, turning once halfway through grilling. Grill chops for 7 to 9 minutes or until slightly pink in center (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chops, onion, and sweet pepper on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as directed.)
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the 3 tablespoons lime juice, 2 tablespoons cilantro, the green onions, salt, and black pepper. Chop cooked chops, red onion, and sweet pepper; add to green onion mixture.
  4. Spoon cheese evenly over half of each tortilla. Top cheese with pork mixture. Fold other half of tortilla over filling. For a charcoal grill, place folded tortillas on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes or until tortillas are light brown, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, place folded tortillas on grill rack over medium heat. Cover; grill as directed.)
  5. Cut each quesadilla into three wedges. If desired, serve with sour cream and/or salsa.
