Instructions

  1. For the barbacoa: In a large crockpot, add beef brisket, beef broth, red onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, chipotle in adobo and bay leaf. Cook on low heat for approximately 8 hours or until the beef can easily pull apart and salt to taste.
  2. In a medium skillet on medium heat, warm avocado oil and add onion and bell peppers. Sautee for approximately 10 minutes while stirring constantly.
  3. In a large skillet on medium heat, add cooking spray and a tortilla.
  4. Evenly spread one half of the tortilla with avocado and evenly distribute barbacoa, onion and bell pepper mixture, mozzarella cheese and queso fresco.
  5. Fold the half of tortilla with no ingredients over the other half to form the quesadilla. Cook approximately 2-3 minutes on each side, or until cheese is melted. Repeat this step until there are no remaining ingredients.
  6. Transfer the quesadilla to a large plate and cut into four slices for serving.
