Ingredients
  1. 1 pound pulled pork (about 2 cups, firmly packed)
  2. 1⁄2 cup barbecue sauce, plus additional to serve
  3. 8 (6-inch) whole-wheat flour tortillas
  4. 1 cup cooked collard greens, drained
  5. 1⁄2 cup canned black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
  6. 1⁄4 cup dill pickle relish
  7. 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  8. Barbecue sauce (optional)
Instructions
  1. Heat a well-seasoned 10-inch cast-iron griddle over medium-high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together pork and barbecue sauce.
  3. Place 1 tortilla on a clean work surface. Spreading each in an even layer, add 1⁄2 cup pork mixture, 1⁄4 cup greens, 2 tablespoons black-eyed peas, 1 tablespoon relish, and 1⁄2 cup cheese. Top with another tortilla. Using a large spatula, transfer to hot pan.
